Overview

Beginning with a life-changing event in the mountains of Iran, and roaming the globe from the backcountry lanes of Yorkshire to the Australian outback, David Yeadon shares serendipitous encounters with amazing people, unexpected challenges, and near-death experiences. His stories illuminate the ways in which years of wandering have taught him to be open to experience, accept things as they are, live life to the fullest, and embrace his many “selves.” These tales are filled with lessons learned from saints, sinners, fellow travelers, and everyday folk, and are accompanied by his own accomplished illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Award-winning author and illustrator Yeadon (Lost Worlds: Exploring the World's Remote Paces) is a world wanderer who has made a career out of writing about backroads and hidden places. Here he writes of the transformation and inner growth brought about by such travel: "To know the world still remains a thing of mystery, silence and secrets this I find one of the greatest joys of all." Yeadon ceaselessly looks for the unknown, less-traveled places and the extraordinary people he encounters along the way, like the "hermit" home he visits on an island off the coast of Maine. His explorations take him all over the world, but he finds the undiscovered even in his native England. His extraordinary line drawings heighten the effect of his lyrical, meditative essays. A treat for the armchair traveler; recommended for all public libraries. Ravi Shenoy, Naperville P.L., IL Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
