Recent customer reviews:

“What a great read!…I couldn’t put this book down…”

“…whimsical accounts of a young man’s “coming of age” as a stranger in strange lands. Very enjoyable  reading.”

“…loved getting lost and found in this beautifully articulated true story of a young man finding his way.” 

About ben

Ben Batchelder has traveled some of the world's most remote roads. Nothing in his background, from a degree in Visual & Environmental Studies at Harvard to an MBA from Wharton, adequately prepared him for the experiences. Yet he persists, for through such journeys life unfolds. Having published four books that map the inner and exterior geographies of meaningful travel, he is a mountain man in Minas Gerais, Brazil who comes down to the sea at Miami Beach, Florida. His second travel yarn, To Belém & Back, received a starred review from Publishers Weekly. For more, visit
