From Publishers Weekly:
Parents of the famous singer and pacifist tell of their year-long sojourn in Iraq in 1951 and how it helped to crystallize their family's values. A 10-year-old Joan drew the slight illustrations that decorate each of the short journal-like entries, where the warm, informal voices of the parents alternate in a medley of familial harmony. Albert Baez concentrates on describing his work as a physics professor and his wife on her efforts to create domestic comfort in their crude Baghdad house. We're steeped in details of trip preparations, private matters and itinerary that are the usual stuff of family vacations. Travails include their anxiety over attaining a functional bathroom, their clash with villagers who took offense at their photographing an historic site and their rainy-day outing to a movie house. One of the Baez family's ostensible motives is to register a vote for cultural diplomacy. The book, however, most resembles a testament to their beliefs, and they speak of their affiliation with the Religious Society of Friends. But, unfortunately, interest in their homey stories wanes too soon despite their good will, and readers, except those curious about the singer's upbringing, will be convinced that the treasure of these memoirs remains personal to the Baez family.
