"e;A Moritz Thomsen-like path less traveled, a Pete Hessler-esque possession of language and culture...that best and rarest of ex-pats: the Yankee gone native."e; Tony D'Souza, author of Whiteman. Where you headed? asked the man in a pick-up. Lihosit should have answered, High adventure. The author of South of the Frontera; A Peace Corps Memoir describes how he hitchhiked along bleak Arizona highways, hacked a path through Honduran mountains in search of water, avoided caiman while riding bulls across flooded Bolivian savannah and grizzlies as he hunted caribou in bush Alaska, ran for his life after getting embroiled in Mexico City politics and more. These are uncommon tales and fascinating reading.
Through provocative insights and observations, Tom Reed explores the ruggedly beautiful landscape of Southern Chile and Argentina as intensely as he examines the current social, political, and cultural landscapes of North America and his own rich inner and spiritual life. Deeply personal, intellectually astute, and searingly honest, Reed misses no nuance in his inward and outward search for a place he can truly call home.Equal parts Romanticist, Beat, Transcendentalist, and Zen Master, Reed is a refreshingly unique new voice in travel and social commentary, and THE OTHER SIDE is an important journey for all who are seeking to discover what it means to truly thrive as individuals and societies in todays complex world.Lauryn Axelrod, Founder of GoNomad.com, alternative travel websiteDeeply discontented and disturbed by the state of the Union at the beginning of the second G.W. Bush term, veteran traveler and wilderness photographer, Tom Reed, sets out in search of a new home in South America, his imagined Paradise. He chooses Chile, a place he hopes is the Utopian opposite of his beloved California coast.Armed with a backpack full of hiking gear, a sharp eye, a bold pen, and an iPod that plays an inspiring soundtrack, Reed explores the wild landscapes, diverse people and fascinating cultures of southern Chile and Argentina while embarking on an unflinchingly honest journey to examine his own beliefs, yearnings, and experience. His wide-ranging odyssey takes him on buses, boats and trails through cities and towns, remote villages and pristine forests, to mountain camps and surfers beaches, where love affairs and politics, philosophy and ecology, religion and lost cameras all merge into a life-changing, mind-altering adventure. From the summits of high Andean peaks to the depths of his most personal thoughts and spiritual ideals, Reed seeks to discover what it means to be at home in the world, and in your own skin.
If, as they say, we all come out of Africa, then somewhere in Kenyas Rift Valley we first learned to live as human beings and we quickly learned to quarrel, too. Migration patterns within Kenya are as complicated as any in the U.S. or Europe and its multi-ethnic history is much, much longer. Fr. Baraza, knows both the brightness of human progress in a peaceful countryside as well as the shadows left by war and fighting. He writes about how to resolve conflicts and difficulties by people who have had long life experience.Drumming Up Dialogue applies the thinking of three leading writers in the field of conflict management to the Bukusu community of Kenya: philosopher Martin Buber, political scientist Fred Charles Ikl, and cultural anthropologist William Ury. These three theorists address the creating of peace between individuals, between opposing factions, and between countries and cultures.Drumming is a traditional Bukusu way of communication. Fr. Baraza uses the drum as a metaphor for the different ways dialogue can be used and interpreted. Baraza presents one of the very few studies of culture of the Bukusu people and the only one to address dialogue through their religions. Based upon the personal experiences and Barazas ongoing contact with his Bukusu people, Drumming Up Dialogue seeks to awaken us to the cultural values of the Bukusu and offer an alternative way to conflict resolution.

A four-thousand-mile bicycle trip gives you plenty of time to contemplate the universe, life, and love. For Lou, turning fifty meant it was time to re-evaluate everything. So the ex-ski bum from Vail has a custom bike built, and he heads off from Steamboat Springs, Colorado, on the trip of a lifetime. At this time, Lou has no ties to a job or familyand his relationship needs time to settle. It was time to embark on the bike tour he had always dreamed of. As cooler fall air teases gold from the quaking aspens, he looks north, toward the national parks of the West, across the Cascades to the Pacific Northwest, and down the California coast. Three months later, hes in Palm Springs, California. With countless hours spent pedaling his Jamison Coda, he has plenty of time to review his past. His is a life story peppered with hilarious escapades from the early days of Vail and Aspen, when those colorful pioneers created their own folklore along the way. For Lou, whose future was uncertain when he pulled out of Steam-boat, his time on the road brings it all into focus. Solo cycling gives way to a journey of romance. Ten years after his epic journey, Lou returns to the Pacific Northwest, this time with his wife, Mari/Moe. Together, they reflect on how they have boldly shaped their dreams into reality and reinvented their lives as inn-keepers in Tulum, Mexico.

Nub was my dad. His name was Lawrence. He is on the right. His brother Theodore is on the left. This picture was taken about 1948. Most of this book was put together to make fiction. This book is about two boys that were brothers growing up about 1910. It has a lot of history, religion and a cook book at the end. Dad gave people nick names, mine was Bow, You pronounce it like Bow in (Bow and Arrows). Lots of names in which were used have been changed, like Bow for my uncle. The picture on the left of the back is of Earl Hamner and I. There isn't and drugs, killing, bed hopping or bad language in it. My other book that are out are (Nub and Bow) and (Between the Tracks).

Book One:Sons of Thunder is the first of two books based on one summers 2000 mile trek across southern Europe. It celebrates the adventure of walking medieval pilgrim trails from Andalusian Seville to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in the northwestern Spanish province of Galicia, and brings the reader along the journey in a first-hand way by weaving emails, journal extracts and walking poems. The broad agricultural expanses of the Spanish countryside form the backdrop for reflections on what its like to pare life down to food, water, will and ambulation while exploring the little villages dotting rural Spain. And from such sparsity, to walk into monumental cities... Mrida, Cceres, Salamanca; cities thriving modernly around Roman ruins, Moorish palaces, Gothic and Renaissance cathedrals; cities offering music, regional cuisine, stunning architecture and art in the heady awe of human history... Then, to walk out again through tranquil forests and plains. But more than a travelogue, these physical experiences are part of a spiritual journey, a journey which on one level culminates en masse with hundreds of other pilgrims celebrating in an incensor swung and organ boomed baroque Cathedral, the shrine of St. James, and that on another deeply individual level ends with an introspective three-day walk to face the finality of the sea, the true end of the road, and cast an intention-rich scallop shell into the cliff-crashing tide as a symbol of all that continues beyond physical boundaries.

After completing 1400 kilometres of walking two different Caminos in Spain and in Portugal, I knew I had to share my love of these journeys through a book. I have never written a book before this one. I have attempted many, but the inspiration was never as intense as now. There are so many books about the Camino that one would wonder why another one is necessary. All the books I could get my hands on regarding this subject were written about the authors personal journey or were written strictly as travel guides. I was inspired to write something different, so I wrote a preparation guide. I want to whet your appetite for your Camino journey. In addition, I want to help you cover all the details, large and small, in your planning so that your Camino will be safe and successful. Everything that is written here, in this guide for planning your trip, comes from lessons I have learned in preparing for and completing my Caminos. I have supplied you with information you need before you go and information that is good to have when you are there. Much of the information in this book is similar to what you will find on various web sites that are dedicated to El Camino. The advantage of using this book to plan is that all the information you need is within these pages. In addition to the general information, I have gone one step further and supplied you with essential tips for packing, travelling, eating, finding your bed and much more that the web sites do not provide. Enjoy your preparations, and... Buen Camino!
Some insight into Life in Mani Today The Road to freedom...Not since the advent of British writer Patrick Leigh Fermors book, Mani - Travels in the Southern Peloponnesus, more than fifty years ago, has there been an historic update, written in English, concerning this land and its people, from a new and very different perspective. Miami-born, Greek-American urologist, Dr. Mickey Demos, exposes the Mani from a unique angle in his book Life in Mani Today The Road to Freedom. This has been a project that the contributing editor, Panayiotis Kokkinias, has spent nearly two years preparing for publication. Kokkinias spent much of this past year in Mani working with Dr. Demos, who wanted to create an up-to-date version to the changes in history, which he discovered when he moved to Mani. His reasoning was based on the fact that his entire family origin began here centuries ago and, until he turned 69 years of age, he had never even visited Greece. Now, at 80, he was on a quest that encompassed an eleven year odyssey. Realizing the passion Kokkinias had for writing, based upon a number of book and periodicals that he had authored and which Demos had read, he asked Kokkinias to help him organize and complete his 600 pages of thoughts into a concise book format and get it published. Demos was a natural, Kokkinias said in an interview, relating to the Doctors ability to capture the stories he relates in Life in Mani Today. So many people of Greek descent have had their roots in Mani, and the stories abound reflecting the traits and characteristics of these wild mountain people who all claim to have a direct connection to a man named Petros Mavromichalis, one of the greatest freedom fighters in Hellenic history. So many myths, superstitions, battles, wild stories, songs, poems, hearsay, as well as vampires, bats, vendettas, and the power of the evil eye are just the beginning along with the warning to those who so much as mention the word, Mani, to anyone outside of this region. Everybody in Greece knew about Mani and had something to say about the place. You had better watch yourself. Those people in Mani are dangerous. Life in Mani Today will give new insight into what has transpired over these past 50-plus years. It is not a dry historical chronology, but a lively look, with some comic relief, about life in the old country. You might be surprised at what has changed and more surprised at what has stayed the same. Here is an opportunity to learn more about a part of Greece that has remained independent of the rest of the mainland for many years. How these people have survived and succeeded in life, and have stayed free from a lot of the politics that currently threaten the financial stability of this great country, continues as a credit to their hard work, their intelligence, and their use of common sense.

Rugby with the stunning Fiji team not only gave me the opportunity to experience diversity in the highest form but inspired me to share my experiences living in Fiji a paradise and well known tourist destination once known as the way the world should be also sharing my experiences living in the USA the most prosperous powerful nation on Earth, while having a blast in one of the most vibrant cities of the world, Las Vegas. Growing up as a child on a copra plantations owned by part European families I lived a fun and exciting life with some challenges and was influenced by the European culture and their language and religion A year at high school in an Indian dominated society saw me struggling to adapt to this environment attending high school with students mainly ancestors of the indentured laborers who were very competitive which made me strive for higher standards through discipline. My personality allowed me to connect with people easily and the opportunity to take part in a carnival gave me exposure not only to be in the public eye but to enhance my leadership skills and to meet with prominent people including the governor general of Fiji Ratu Sir Penaia Ganilau who later became the president of the country. Anthony Robbins the world known motivator and owner of the exclusive Namale plantation resort who I met personally inspired me to improve the quality of my communication through his book unlimited power which helped me to deal with many sensitive issues like depression, death and suicide and gave me the power to be a great leader by having a great bonding power that helped me to connect with my people to bring the best out of them. The life at an exclusive world known 5 star resort gave me the opportunity to meet the famous world environmentalist Jean Michael Cousteau and to get a taste of luxury and pampering and also to experience the hospitality of the Fijian people who are dedicated to providing outstanding service with a personal touch making Fiji one of the best tourist destinations of the world. Destiny and a true love story brought me to the USA the land of hope exposing me to a quality of life with high standards and gave me an understanding of the American dream which is about owning your own home while learning to adapt to a new environment and family and a career in banking, Recognition which is a key element in this society saw me with a gold medal presented in Hawaii for my outstanding sales and customer service skills giving me a chance to be part of a royal celebration of excellence and then becoming one of the leaders of the bank managing in a dynamic and changing environment. My inspiring management style helped me to overcome many challenges including managing people through so much change in an economy that was constantly declining and a massive lay off and with the so many opportunities out there I am now going to think a big picture, take a different route to break new ground and will find a whole new world to conquer.

The Massacre at Noe Creek is a collection of partly truth and partly fiction short stories and tales. Noe Creek, the story from which the book takes its name is the story of how an event near the end of the civil war affects the lives of two young people at the beginning of WW II. It is a delightful tale of romance and war. Colonial heights Road, the second story in the book, is part history and part biography as it tells the story of the author coming of age while growing up in this rural crossroads community during the 1940s. Other stories in the book include fishing and hunting tales, and the author's memories of his trips to Moscow and England.
Journeys is a duet of sorts. The author will take you alternately on a nearly 12,000-mile motorcycle ride around the U. S. as well as an inside look at his own personal spiritual journey through six-plus decades of experiencing God.It began as a sabbatical project through his church in an attempt to find out what is happening in Seventh-day Adventist Churches across America. Why are some growing and most not? What is the degree of optimism among the pastors and the laity? How willing are we to embrace change in a church that looks strongly to its roots?As he began to put a plan in place Marvin quickly saw an opportunity to fulfill a life long dream of riding his motorcycle all around the country while digging out his research data. This adventure was a full year in planning, two months in carrying out, and another year in getting it into book form.Marvin believes that the information he found, while connecting with only one church that was not Seventh-day Adventist, is applicable to all churches in general. There may be some aspects that are unique to Adventists, but for the most part, people are people and issues of control, resistance to change, and the need to connect with todays young families are more general in nature.As he had ample time to reflect while riding countless hours alone he felt called to share his own personal spiritual journey and how that developed and changed through sixty-four years of life and thirty-seven years of ministry.This book doesnt have all the answers, but if you are in any way involved in a church it will raise some issues worth your consideration.May God bless you as you experience the Journeys.
