Overview

Stumbling Upon Mowgli by Nicasio Latasa

With an abundance of hesitation Dane, a man of thirty wrestling with his own fears and self-confidence, abruptly walks out of his job and a life set in stone to join his friend Cosmo on a journey down into the heart of the Baja Peninsula. J.P., Cosmo's uncle who mirrored as a substitute father to Cosmo, recently passed away and Cosmo wants to send his ashes out to sea at J.P.'s favorite place in the world, an isolated fishing village three quarters of the way down the Peninsula. Dane is engaged to a woman he loves, but has somehow lost the luster in his day to day life. His job, his routines, his lack of ambition weigh heavily on his chest. During the trip Dane looks to rediscover his dreams, his desires, and tackle his fears while re-learning to live in the moment under the the philosophies of his eccentric friend Cosmo. Surf sessions, travel adventures, personal tragedy and triumph, self-searching, and release of the spirit, the two friends help each other get through difficult times in their lives while meeting up with interesting characters and adventures that only a trip into Baja can deliver.

Surfing journey that starts in Oceanside California and heads south of the border. Lots of good surfing action in off-the-chart spots. This book is about self discovery, friendship, love, and commitment. A good read that will make you want to go on a surfing safari.

How many times have you finished a book to smile, say that was good, I enjoyed that....it was a really good read. I just did all that and turned back to the first page to start reading all over again. Nicasio Latasa has crafted a fine tale of heart,soul and mind.He has breathed his life into two young man that share bonds growing up with salt water,sand and mother ocean running through their veins. But it is more than a surf trip, this is a voyage to find one's self. The characters have been well developed, with background into their personalities inserted in very unique tales. The vocabulary was challenging at first, but once I got the author's style it became one of my favorite things about the book. A great read for all humans being involved with life. This book is like surfing a really good wave, you just want to paddle back out for another.

Great read for all reading abilities. Characters are all well developed and the story line keeps the pages turning with ease. Author brings to light life questions that we have all asked at one point or another. Author stays true to the characters personalities and does not compromise by taking the easy/cheap route. Story line makes you want to pick up your things and take that trip to find yourself. Great book for anyone looking for a summer read or in need of some soul searching. Highly recommended from this reader.

When you think you have read just about everything, it is delightful to have a fresh veiw of a young man that has grown up in calif, and now has a good tale to tell. It is a refresher course in words, in life in general. Very thoughtful, well coordinated, entertaining story. fictional, but you wonder how much is real.Hope this new talent on the scene gives us more.
