Cousineaua€™s wanderlust has driven him to visit nearly 100 countries as a backpacker, documentary filmmaker, travel writer, photographer, and art and literary tour leader. For him, travel gives us what his mentor Joseph Campbell called a€œthe key to the realm of the muses.a€ As author of the best-selling travel book The Art of Pilgrimage, Cousineau continues to crisscross the world as a travel writer, filmmaker, and host of Global Spirit. The Book of Roads: Travel Stories from Michigan to Marrakech is the culmination of a lifetime of travel experiences, from the steel factories of Detroit to headhunting villages in the Philippines, the war-torn villages in the Balkans to the river roads of Canada once traversed by his voyageur ancestors. His rhapsodic travel stories place him in the league of fellow travelers who are also masterful writers, such as Pico Iyer, Jack Kerouac, Jan Morris, and Beryl Markham.It rattles past the Minnesota Mining factory, the green dream of Little League fields, and the yard of rusting school buses ... passing the old grain store, the Wayne DriveIn, and the old Willow Run Ford Plant, which my Uncle Don helped retool ... His expression is as mysterious as the strange marks of hobo code he and his brothers and sisters leave behind on ... This one signals something like, All you need to know, kid, is the secret schedule that reveals the key to your dream of escape.
