Looking for My Country : In this engaging memoir, Robert MacNeil interweaves the story of his won journeys with the watershed events of the twentieth century and reveals, with wit and candor, how he came to become an American. Robert MacNeil, well known for his books and "The MacNeil/Lehrer Newshour" on PBS, grew up in Halifax, Nova Scotia, imbued with all that was Canadian, and became a journalist in London when he was in his twenties. His jobs, first with the BBC and then NBC, led him from England to America where he saw this country as an outsider. Despite his ambivalent feeling about some American behavior and values, it was in America that MacNeil found himself for the next twenty-five years. Keenly aware of his sense that his only real home was the United States, he resisted for years becoming an American citizen. Looking For My Country is the story of two journeys: MacNeil's interior struggle with what nationality means and the historic events he covered as a reporter here and abroad.
