Summary
"These travelogues recount some of the remarkable and oftentimes amusing experiences of an award-winning adventure travel writer and photographer. The narrative opens in beguiling India and then moves across the subcontinent to two countries, both of which appear on the US State Department's "Alerts and Warnings" list; spectacular Myanmar (aka Burma) and mystifying Pakistan. Moving westward, Syria and Jordan unveil the eternal enchantment of the "Cradle of Civilization" before the present day destruction of this glorious region of our world began. Heading south to the Bight of Benin, the author meets a voodoo chief in Lomé, Togo, to help him get his mojo on. After crossing the Atlantic Ocean and dropping into the Central American jungles of Belize, Guatemala, and Mexico, the author finds himself assigned to a team of anthropologists searching for unmapped Maya temple complexes. To complete the circumnavigation of the globe the author visits his Pacific island neighbors on Rapa Nui (aka Easter Island) and enters a war zone in Timor-Leste (aka East Timor). Road warriors and armchair travelers alike will find these tales of movement, discovery and humanity as charming as they are fascinating."--Page[4] of cover
