Independent journalist Garry Leech takes the reader on an exciting and thought-provoking journey from his childhood in Britain to life in the US Marines in Panama, from being a butcher in Detroit to driving a cab in New York and dealing blackjack in Las Vegas, from the war zones of El Salvador and Colombia to indigenous communities in the Amazon, and from post-industrial Canada to the socialist experiments of Venezuela and Cuba.

Leech vividly describes how his adventures and experiences led him, not only on a geographic odyssey, but also on a path of personal discovery that resulted in him questioning many of the values and beliefs he grew up with. No longer able to ignore the many injustices he has witnessed over the years, Leech concludes that socialism offers us our only hope to achieve a more compassionate, democratic and sustainable world.
