Forty years of travel writing from a noted poetFor more than four decades, poet Robin Magowan has journeyed in search of spiritual experiences. Hitchhiking and walking, by bus or, when necessary, by horse, he has explored lands as exotic as Nepal and New Guinea, as classic as Italy and France, and as forgotten as Persia and pre-Castro Cuba, submerging himself in the mysteries of Haitian voodoo and the simple pleasures of Burgundian peasant life. Known for its beauty, wit, and expressive power, Magowan's prose vibrates with the intensity of an outsider who crawls into the skin of a country -- and emerges transformed.


ROBIN MAGOWAN is the author of "America, America" (Abbeville, 1999), "Memoirs of a Minotaur" (Story Line, 1999), "Lilac Cigarette in a Wish Cathedral: Poems" (South Carolina, 1998), "Tour de France "(Velo, 1996), and "Fabled Cities of Central Asia: Samarkand, Bukahra, Khiva" (Abbeville, 1990). He is also the translator of Henri Michaux's Ecuador, published in 2001 by Northwestern University Press. He lives in Salisbury, Connecticut.
