Excerpts from the book:

Poetry and Beauty

"Poetry and beauty
are born out of pain.

This is their glory,
this is our gain."

The Spirit of Adventure

"May adventure find you
and may you find it."

Re-Travel

"Travel reveals
the unknown.

Travel rejuvenates
the heart and soul.

Travel reroutes
the routine.

Travel redeems
the traveller's dream."

Fool's Errand

"If being in love is a fool's errand,
then I have travelled wide and far.

Then I am its greatest champion,
then I am its greatest star.

If being in love is a fool's errand,
then I am on its never-ending quest.

Then I am its greatest hero,
then I am its greatest jest."

Editorial Reviews

I consider myself an adventurer. I travel by bicycle and live on the road. I find that few people understand the experiences that I've had, but Tarr is obviously one of those few.He uses simple, charming verse to put across the feelings that adventurers have in private as they face loneliness, difficulty, danger, and of course the ultimate question of their purpose in life and in risking their life.Ultimately, Tarr's sense of faith in humanity and in the sacred shines through even the passages that reflect on the hardest times. This book is a treasure that truly communicates the joy of adventure.
