New Book “Asian Trail Mix offers a rich array of vicarious travel experiences for the homebound. … We roam through Raffles Hotel in Singapore, visiting the haunts of Noel Coward, Herman Hesse, and Somerset Maugham. We then journey for 22 hours by jeep to Berau in Indonesian Borneo, following in the footsteps of Joseph Conrad’s Lord Jim. We visit the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center … On a three-wheeled pedicab, we brave roaring traffic to experience bustling Saigon. On Elephant Island in Thailand we backpack through rainforest, avoid king cobras, and lie in a hammock looking up at stars. In Japan we watch participants risk a horrible death at an Onbashira festival, a once-every-six-year Shinto event that involves riding huge logs down a steep slope … On the whole a well written and engaging description of travel experiences.”
— Edward Dickey, former director at the National Endowment for the Arts and author of Shakespeare Meets the Buddha
