Now I Can Sit With the Old Men - Journeys on the Road to Wisdom
If you set foot in one hundred lands, you can sit with the old men, say the people of West Africa, where age is equated with wisdom. The acknowledgement that travel imparts wisdom lies at the heart of this engaging, poignant, non-fiction book of global adventure, misfortune, insight, inspiration, and reward. Using rich descriptions to paint colorful tableaux, the author carries the reader on her journeys as she recounts highlights of her personal experiences, keen observations, and a few lessons learned in nearly two decades of traveling, living, and working in some of the poorest, most challenging, most dangerous, and most interesting countries around the world. Travel with her to Cambodia, Mali, Costa Rica, Tajikistan, the United States, Rwanda, Iraq, and more in this quick but delightful read.
