Published by JohnAGraham
John Graham’s memoir, Sit Down Young Stranger, is a searingly honest tale of one’s man’s search for meaning. Graham has dodged a violent death at least a dozen times, and the first part of his book takes the reader down that slippery path. He shipped out on a freighter when he was sixteen, took part in the first (and only) direct ascent of Mt. McKinley’s North Wall at twenty, a climb so dangerous that nobody has done it since. He hitchhiked around the world at twenty-two, covering every war he found along the way as a stringer for the Boston Globe. A Foreign Service Officer for fifteen years, he was in the middle of the revolution in Libya and the war in Vietnam.

To the young Graham, adventure was everything, and each brush with death only pushed him to up the ante—and to bury ever deeper the emotional life needed to make him whole.

Then it changed, sometimes slowly, sometimes dramatically, including during one tragic night at the height of a battle in Vietnam. Over the last quarter century, Graham has been actively involved in peace-building initiatives all over the world.
