FOUR CORNERS

"For the past decade, I have traveled extensively throughout North America. My various travels have led me to forty-eight

states, five Canadian provinces, and numerous foreign countries. In preparation for these journeys, I have read books, studied weather maps, watched the weather channel, bought numerous editions of Rand McNally's Road Atlas, checked out library books specializing in the local history of various areas, read and reread the Mobile Travel Guide, and upon arriving, I have been a scavenger of local newspapers and other scraps of information I could find available." (From Dan's Book, Four Corners - A Literary Excursion Across America. Click here for the beginning)

Dan - I am travelling across the United States In a Van for the summer and fall of 1999 and I was wondering if their are any conventions or meetings that might be on my root. I am leaving May 24 from Toronto, Canada and am gradually heading down to the deep South and across to the West Coast for fall. Please E-Mail to Janie Carrabs.

This June a writer and myself are going to begin work on a book about Route 66. I plan on shooting a good deal more than what will be fit in the book. So, I'm looking for outlets for the photos I'll have extra.If you have a direction to point me in I would appreciate the advice. Thanks, Jim Luning

ANOTHER TRAVEL WRITER WHO WILL NOT BORE YOU !!!!!

Edward Abbey

"About ten years ago I took a job as a seasonal park ranger in a place called Arches National Monument near the little town of Moab in southeast Utah. Why I went there no longer matters; what I found there is the subject of this book. My job began on the first of April and ended on the last day of September. I liked the work and the canyon country and returned the following year for a second season. I would have returned the third year too and each year thereafter but unfortunately for the Arches, a primitive place when I first went there, was developed and improved so well that I had to leave." Edward Abbey - The introduction to Desert Solitaire.

Edward Abbey is the author of Desert Solitaire, one of the great travel books of all time.


    The Mountain refers to the new book, Running to the Mountain, by Jon Katz. Jon has become a personal friend through our e-mail responses and our similar interest in Thomas Merton. Katz book was reviewed in February in USA Today and numerous other magazines. It describes a trip he took to a mountain cabin on the edge of New York. His experiences there rival the works of Thoreau and Walden and, in a sense, are reminders of Traveling with Charlie by John Steinbeck.

I did a lengthy review of Running to the Mountain. Check it out!
