Have you ever stopped and thought about the name of your home country or one you're travelling to? What it means, where it came from, how it came to be? From The Land of Many Rabbits to The Land of the Thunder Dragon, and many places in between, Found in Translation is a fascinating and extraordinary journey into the history of the naming of the world. Filled with extraordinary stories of invasion and rebellion, culture and religion, misunderstanding and the curiosities of language as it has evolved over the ages, it offers etymological insight into how and why the countries we live in and travel to got their names - and their often bizarre meanings.
