Adventures well-lived have provided the raw material for my stories, and as years pass, the memories have aged–perhaps gaining a richness of flavor, like a fine wine. I’ve discovered themes as I’ve retold these stories, enthralling listeners around campfires, in living rooms, and even in classrooms and auditoriums. But still, no book published.
Finally, after much simmering and procrastination, I am delighted to share with you, dear reader, these first-hand accounts of wilderness backpacking, rugged mountaineering, and intercultural explorations I’ve made on three continents. Woven together, these adventures have formed the tapestry of my life, and reveal the parallel transformation within, my discovering of “Eduardo”. My sincerest hope is that in reading, you’ll be inspired to explore new frontiers, appreciate natural beauty wherever you journey, and generally expand your own comfort zone.
