"It is Pedersen's gift to be able to draw the reader into her world." --Front Street Reviews
"[Pedersen's] wicked, sarcastic, dry, self-deprecating sense of humor won me over and I absolutely loved it start to finish."--Printed Page, of Buffalo Gal
India today is a nation caught between the rich heritage of its past and the great economic potential of its future.

Part travelogue, part history, and part cultural reflection, Planes, Trains, and Auto-Rickshaws provides an intimate glimpse of a nation at its turning point. It is a must-read for those who want to understand India beyond the headlines.
