Rival explorers travel the world in a relentless search for the lost treasure of a ruthless Japanese pirate. A benevolent young American in Paris brings out the worst in a vulnerable, blind beggar. And on the North Shore of Massachusetts, freakishly hot winter weather turns a surfer’s fantasy into a horrifying nightmare... THE VICARIOUS TRAVELER sparkles with humor, drama, adventure, and delightful poetry.
