****The Way of the Wanderer
Discover Your True Self Through Travel
written and illustrated by David Yeadon
Reviewed October 1, 2004.
Travelers’ Tales Books, San Francisco, 2001. 256 pages.
Available at Sembach Library (910.4 YEA).
This isn’t a how-to book about how to travel and find your true self.
Instead, it contains anecdotes from the worldwide wanderings of David Yeadon,
including many mystical experiences in which he learned more about himself.
The scope of his travels is truly amazing, with the adventures in this
book covering all the continents except Africa and Antarctica. He seems
to have a gift for connecting with people from all sorts of cultures.
He knows how to pause and discover a place and himself.
The adventures aren’t told in a chronological or geographical sequence.
I read this book slowly and meditatively, a little at a time. That
way I could savor and marvel. This book makes you want to slow down
and truly see the world.
