China on Foot

by Edwin Dingle

Edwin Dingle’s book China on Foot details his trip through Hong Kong and Shanghai, and finally into Tibet, where he would be one of the first Westerners to enter a Tibetan Monastery. There he learned certain advanced spiritual forms of yogic breathing and meditation, which later inform his spiritual practices. Later Dingle would change his name (who wouldn’t?) to “Ding Le Mei,” which was given to him by his spiritual guide in Tibet. 

This book is a recount of his trip through China in the early 1900s, and is good as a travelogue for that period: it’s entertaining, has a solid amount of detail about cities and villages, contains elements of China’s geography, politics, religion, native peoples, animals, and the difficulty of traveling through such unforgiving territory. Dingle falls into the category of gentleman explorers of China for whom the journey was far greater than the destination, preparation was minimal, and caution was ultimately thrown to the wind.



The Idiot and the Odyssey: Walking the Mediterranean

by Joel Stratte-McClure

When inquisitive American journalist Joel Stratte-McClure decides to walk around the Mediterranean Sea, we’re in for an exhilarating adventure. As a 30 year expatriate in France, he explores the coast, countryside and regional cultures – as well as his own mind – with compulsive vigour. Armed with a copy of Homer’s Odyssey, he re-opens this great book for us as he ponders life, divorce, Buddhism, alcoholism, the art of trekking and a vast collection of weird, wicked, wonderful people along the way. This is a trip to get into!

Reviews
“This is the best guide to the Mediterranean since Homer’s The Odyssey”
– Princess Beatriz de Orleans Borbón from Spain.

“One of those seductive books that, as you read, slowly insinuates itself into your consciousness and becomes more and more compelling and entrancing.”
– Bruce Elder, The Sydney (Australia) Morning Herald.

“‘The Idiot and the Odyssey’ is such a terrific antidote to the middle age melancholia that if Homer could do a sequel, Odysseus would probably jump ship to join Joel Stratte-McClure’s MedTrek instead.”
– Craig Unger, Vanity Fair Contributing Editor and author of “The Fall of the House of Bush.”

“Described as ‘Eat Pray Love’ for men, Stratte-McClure’s account is entertaining, informative and inspirational.”
– Toni Whitman, Booktopia Buzz.

“A dream experience of a lifetime. It’s worth every ebullient, blistering step!”
– Tom Moore, Editor-in-Chief, Reader’s Digest Australia

Unjustly Accused: The true story of one man’s experience in, and escape from, a Dominican Republic prison

by Susan L Stewart

When Corey and Jeff, a friend from work, decide to go to the Dominican Republic, they have no idea of the pain and suffering waiting for them. Someone they know recommends Diego, a local who speaks English, to be their taxi driver and tour guide.

On their second day, Diego takes them on a rambling ride through the capital city of Santo Domingo. They are on an eight-lane bridge filled with cars crawling along in both directions when two men on a moped dressed in plain-clothes pull them over in an attempted car jacking. Things only get worse when the uniformed police arrive and want to know what is going on. The carjackers pull out baseball caps with “Policia” across the front.

Even though there is no physical evidence and their rights were trampled on, within a week, all three of them are arrested, charged with drug trafficking and sentenced to one-to-three years in Nayajo, the Dominican Republic’s second largest prison. The fact that Corey and Jeff are innocent means nothing to the corrupt legal system.

Corey tells his story as he battles dysentery, pneumonia, depression, and ADHD. Despite his failing health, the horrific, inhumane conditions and rampant corruption, he out thinks the lawyers, guards and prison system to create their defense and escape plan. Once outside the prison gates, he and Jeff race across the city to the airport while trying to avoid the police and the very real possibility of being recaptured before they can gain their freedom. And if they fail? They face a mandatory 20-year prison sentence with no possibility of parole.

This gripping true story will keep you in suspense from the first to the last page and make you think twice before hiring a taxi while on vacation in a third-world country!

Mexico: Sunlight & Shadows: Short Stories & Essays by Mexico Writers

by Michael Hogan

**2015 Gold Digital Award winner from Independent Book Publishers of America** This is one of the best books available about life for both expat residents and natives in villages and cities across Mexico. What sets it apart from most other books about living in Mexico is that it’s a literary collection of short stories and essays, full of insights by contemporary authors who write and live full time in Mexico or who have spent a lot of time living in the country. The superb collection contains twenty two works, all but five from authors who live full time in the country. Their writing spans a variety of topics; many contributions extol life in Mexico’s abundant sunlight while others examine what the shadows sometimes obscure. It’s a sampler of sorts, with active hyperlinks for more information about the authors and their other writing. The anthology contains complete chapters from books and also single pieces from internationally-acclaimed authors and emerging writers: Bruce Berger, E.G. Brady, Ann Hazard, Michael Hogan, Jim Johnston, William Kaliher, Janice Kimball, Judy King, Jeanine Kitchel, David Lida, C.M. Mayo, Carol M. Merchasin, Mikel Miller, Katie O’Grady, Antonio Rambles, Daniel Reveles, Robert Richter, Lin Robinson & Ana Maria Corona, John Scherber, Jennifer Stace, James Tipton, and Candelora Versace. Perhaps the best way to gain valuable insights about the day-to-day life of people in a foreign country is to read good books by authors living and/or writing in that country. The purpose of this book is to identify several writers who can help readers accomplish this for Mexico. Enjoy!
