A distinctly senior voice, making connections and mistakes with strangers in unlikely corners. A mix of both agony and ecstasy, paddling up the Jehlum and down the Mekong, trekking in the Ukraine and Nepal, jeep-swinging through the Northwest Frontier, Pakistan, marooned in the Gulf of Tonkin, and dauntlessly embracing, everywhere, the life-giving jolts of culture shock. I longed to be more at home in the world. Thats all I had in mind in 1978, when I started out, late - at 53. But over time, metamorphosis - uninvited, unexpected — crept into my backpack. — Virginia Barton Brownback
