In March 1967 Hamaya came to New York, bought himself an Oldsmobile Jetstar 88 and covering a distance of 28,000km he drove for 71 days through 35 states, spending $522 on gasoline. Throughout the trip he kept a diary which is included here. Seven years before he had taken part in the Ampo demonstrations and now the time was right for him to visit America to get a clearer picture of the formidable country. He was clearly moved by what he saw and the book is inscribed by Hamaya "Peace and Love". Uncommon. Only three copies in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
