To Purchase: Please contact me at

Email me your name and mailing address. I will mail the book to you with an invoice for payment. Thank You!! (it is cheaper for all to do it this way. Too many, middle people want a piece of the pie ($) with on line purchases)

For your convenience I will include a self addressed stamped envelope. Thanks.

Cost is $15.00 per book plus shipping and sales tax.

His works shed light on how humans influence the ecology of running and still waters. Curiosity about a river and a future led him to China in 2010. Over the next ten years he traveled China’s roads, trains, buses, planes, and rivers.

He now lives on a small farm in the Cascade Mountain foothills of Snohomish County. He continues to write about his travels to China. His first book A Trivial Travel Tale to Northeast China, (2012) has now been followed by Chengdu: Sojourns in the Land of Abundance, 2021.

“That was not a trivial tale! It was a master piece! I couldn’t put it down”

“Wow, you know a lot about China”

“… this is the greatest book I’ve ever read. It has added meaning to my life. If Shakespeare had been to China, this is the book he would have written. You can’t live a good life if you haven’t read this book.”
