Overview

Spiritual trailblazer Huston Smith has written comprehensive books about religion and a memoir of his own life, but nowhere has he merged the two elements of seeking and experience with such storytelling flair as he has in these pages. Few have done as much as Smith to explore and illuminate the world's religions and spiritual traditions, and none have done it with such accessibility, wonder, and delight. In this joyous volume, he looks back on his extraordinary life, describing riveting scenes with unforgettable characters in India, Africa, Tibet, and Japan. Smith's charm and exuberance come through on every page.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This memoiristic volume, while perhaps less thoughtful and thought-provoking than much of Smith's prior work on world religions, is an affecting set of recollections from a man of tireless curiosity and openness. The stories included take place in settings ranging from the American Midwest to Tibet and Africa, and feature cameos by the likes of Joseph Campbell and Pete Seeger. VERDICT A joyful volume from the mind and experience of a fortunate and gifted scholar of religions; a pleasure for the general reader and seeker.Advice & Self-Help
