About the Book
The year is 1964 and a college professor in California has accepted a year-long teaching assignment in Kanpur, India. Charlotte Dallett Mathews, the professor's wife and mother of four young children, chronicles the entire adventure as the family travels halfway around the globe and sets up their new household in a residential compound in central India. Her narrative, a collection of over 50 letters sent home during this great family odyssey, is richly illustrated by photos taken at the time by Charlotte and her husband Jon. Pull up a chair and travel to a distant time and place with Charlotte and her family during their eventful Indian adventure!
