THE PANAMA HAT TRAIL

Author: Tom Miller, Tony Hillerman (foreword)

This is one of the classics of travel writing. It follows the making and marketing of a single Panama hat (Panama hats are actually made in Ecuador) and is an account of Ecuadorian life.

On a lively and quixotic quest that takes him from Ecuador to Colombia and finally to a hat shop in San Diego, Miller travels from the basement of the third world to the penthouse of the first. Along the way, he encounters cultures in collision, raw capitalism, and “bus-plunge highways.”
