This long-awaited book of Cousineauís travel stories and reflections,
represents 25 years of adventures on the road.
"One reason to
travel is to leave where you are; another is to discover the new; a
third is to live with your body the imagination's ceasless reaching out;
a fourth is to feel the depth of connection, to what you leave behind as
much as what you enter. Each of these energies gives its wisdom to
Phil Cousineau's beautifully written The Book of Roads. Its fine, true
current carries fragrences and faces, landscapes and stories, rooms
carved out of rock, and the sudden jolt of perception shar as a
sail-driven wagon wheel covering hitherto untravelled ground."
Cousineau surges from place to place like a
happy corpuscle in the world's bloodstream. No road escapes him,
whether spiritual, virtual or real, and he describes scenery along the
way with wisdom, humor and undimmed enthusiasm going back to
childhood wonder. Read this book. --Mort Rosenblum # # #
