The Wayward Traveler follows the adventures of Louis, a young American who, in 1985, is determined to travel the world. The story takes place in forty countries and spans ten years: from the deck of a felucca on the Nile to the scorched dunes of India's Thar Desert to the powerful Beni River in the Amazon Basin. Louis feels disenchantment with his former life, and a yearning to understand the foreign lands he encounters on his travels. He's broke most of the time and spends considerable effort trying to get by. Along the way he meets other travelers. He learns about love and compassion, and hate. He befriends a Thai monk and Hindu Sadhu Babas and learns about other ways of thought, and enlightenment. Along the way Louis develops a list of Rules to help him get by, and yet, theres a restlessness to his travels. He continues to wander into new countries, and through it all his Rules save him. On a frozen ridge in the Atlas Mountains he comes up with his first rule, Embrace the Unknown, to combat the fear that had been building in him. In Israel he decides If You Can't Get Out of Something, Get Into It when his survival depends on pushing his body beyond its limits. And when he's under the spell of a mad salesman with three personalities he realizes how important it is to Choose Your Battles. Whether you're a traveller or an arm chair traveller, this book will make you feel the road.
