From Woodstock to the Okavango, How a bookworm turned flower child turned healthcare executive found joy in traveling the world.
Structured in a series of essays and anecdotes, this memoir tells the story of a small-town Pennsylvania girl who stretched her horizons, tested her limits, and traveled all over the globe.
This first of two volumes follows author Sherry Knowlton and her husband Mike’s post college tour of America in their hippie van; it describes regular hikes of the Appalachian and Rocky Mountain backcountry; and, driven by a love of wild animals, Sherry and Mike are beckoned to Africa again and again.
These essays address topics as diverse as modes of transportation, wild animal encounters, Indian Jones moments, and people met along the way. They also include practical travel tips gained through firsthand experiences.
Augmented by stunning photos by Knowlton and her husband, Beyond the Sunset is a love letter to all those explorers with a nine to five job and a zest for travel.
