Summary
"Journey Man is a gutsy, humorous and sometimes tragic odyssey that begins on an Israeli collective farm in 1974. Years later, it draws to a close at an all-night ceremony on a Native American Reservation. The odyssey takes the reader into nine countries, on four continents, over a span of three decades. The author meets challenging surprises as a long distance hitchhiker, takes life-threatening risks when he drops into a revolution, transforms himself into a merchant seaman as a professional actor, comes face-to-face with death in a devastating earthquake, and embraces spiritual awakenings as a participant in little-known indigenous rituals. Journey Man is a celebration of adventure and revelation, community and cooperation, faith and trust."--Author's website
