The setting of the book "Dreams From My Father" changes over the course of the novel.  As it is a memoir about Barack Obama's life, the novel starts in Hawaii, but travels to all the places that he's lived or visited such as Indonesia with his mom, half sister and stepfather, Chicago as a community organizer, New York as a student and Kenya, to visit his father's people.
