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!
