Noted journalist Mark Jacobson and his wife, Nancy, decided they couldn't take another moment of watching their three young children get any stupider. There was only one recourse: to get away, far away. 12,000 Miles in the Nick of Time covers their three-month trek through Thailand, Cambodia, Nepal, India, Jordan, Israel, France, and England, to timeless destinations--the Angkor Wat, Katmandu's Durbar Square, the Pyramids at Giza, and Jerusalem. The concept: to contrast these immortal works of man with the crap on TV. But it is also a wider journey, stretching across generations, an expedition into the minds of five family members as they make their way through a succession of cramped cars, seventeen-hour train rides, and one more bowl of curry. Fueled by Jacobson's trademark mix of cynicism and sincerity, 12,000 Miles in the Nick of Time is a rollicking journey across the globe and through the chambers of the human heart.
