Publisher's Summary

A funny thing happened on the way to America. It's the end of the 19th century, and a man named Mordecai desperately wants to leave Russia with his wife and baby. He has given his life's savings to a cousin, who promises to provide passports only if Mordecai meets him in a particular village: The Place Where Nobody Stops. Mordecai and family arrive in the village, and wait. They wait for 10 long years. And what strange and wonderful years they are!

jerry, Robby. Is there text to go with the audio? I'm a much more see and listen learner than just a listener.
