About the Author

After a near death experience at age fifteen, Joseph Davida left his parents' home and moved into Manhattan. Too young to get a "real" job, he started up what became one of the biggest weed delivery services in New York to support himself while he pursued his career as a musician and songwriter. For years he worked with some of the best musicians in the world, until a nervous breakdown brought his time in the music industry to an end. During this time, he traveled the world before finally settling in Nashville, where he had two beautiful daughters and started a successful chain of retail stores. He now concentrates on being a good father, and actively plans for the coming revolution...while also working to get his many stories onto the page.

Reviewed by Lesley Jones for Readers' Favorite Traveling High and Tripping Hard by Joseph Davida is a personal memoir like no other. Joseph was raised in a small town not far from Manhattan. When he is just eight years of age, he experiences his first prophetic hallucination, which transforms his life and sends him on a quest for the meaning behind the strange messages from eerie beings and angels. Follow his journey from a lost Mayan city to Bangkok to the jungles of Colombia and beyond. Joseph believes his mission is to save the world and his experiences will make you laugh, cry and gasp. His travels and the characters he meets along the way are diverse and extraordinary. Can Joseph actually save the world when at times he cannot even save himself? Traveling High and Tripping Hard by Joseph Davida is an amazing story of a troubled soul searching for answers, from others and within himself. His brutal honesty throughout this book is commendable. The truthfulness and graphic descriptions of the hallucinations and his anguish at not understanding the meaning behind them were heartbreaking and unnerving. I loved the relationship between him and his father and the last journey he took to keep a promise; this was profound. I did laugh out loud when the author was trying to gain entry into Israel and created a Jewish name. I felt every emotion while reading this book. You are truly taken on a wild journey of discovery of far flung lands and deep emotions. The ending brought peace to Joseph, and that was all I was hoping for.
