Cameron Dueck: “Mennonite has a lot of definitions”
Across Latin America, from the plains of Mexico to the jungle of Paraguay, live a cloistered Germanic people. In Menno Moto, a memoir of an eight-month, 45,000 kilometre motorcycle journey across the Americas, Mennonite writer Cameron Dueck searches for common ground within his cultural diaspora. From issues of drug smuggling and water rights in Mexico, to a mass-rape scandal in Bolivia, to the Green Hell of Paraguay and the wheat fields of Argentina, Dueck follows his ancestors south, finding reasons to both love and loathe his culture — and, in the process, find himself.
