About the Book
Automotive/outdoor/boating editor and photographer Bruce W. Smith recounts some of his most exciting travels during his three decades penning articles for national magazines. Ride along as he four wheels the length of the Amazon Basin and accompanies archaeologists venturing deep into the Gautemalan jungle in search of Mayan ruins. Sense the beauty and dangers of a remarkable boat trip in Alaska and off-roading Down Under to explore Australia's remarkable tropical region and its most barren desert. "A Recollection of Journeys" puts the armchair explorer right by his side.
"What I have learned over the years is life only goes around once. When an opportunity rises to stretch one's bounds of comfort exploring new destinations, grab the wheel and go for it. You'll never regret taking the challenge!" -- Bruce W. Smith
