Launching “Vanishing Tales” by James Dorsey

james dorsey ebook coverSo, we’ve been quiet over here, I know.  The truth is, we’re working on restructuring Vagabundo as we have been planning on pushing into new streams.  One of those streams we’ve been most aggressively pursuing is publishing.  In fact, we’re extremely excited to announce that after a couple months of hard work on our end, and years worth of adventure and work on James Dorsey’s part, we’ve just published our first every travel book!

The collected works, by Vagabundo Contributor James Dorsey, is an homage to stories from the vanishing trails of the world.  The book is a series of short stories spanning from Cambodia to Mali to Peru and back again.  They are the types of stories that allow the reader to feel like they too are directly involved in the story.  If the travel pieces don’t inspire you travel yourself, you’ll feel as though you’ve managed to escape your current world for as long as James’ beautiful words grace the pages before you.

Don’t believe us that it’s awesome?

Check out a couple endorsements from very prominent members of the travel community:

     “James Dorsey is no ordinary travel writer. In this remarkable book, ranging from Southeast Asia to West Africa, he takes us inside tribal cultures that many readers will be surprised to learn still exist. The author’s sincere fascination with remote lands and the ancient practices of their inhabitants often makes him as much participant as observer. That a 21st-century man could yet invoke the spirit of a Stanley or a Shackleton makes “Vanishing Tales from Ancient Trails” all the more a must-read.”

Dick Russell, author of “Eye of the Whale: Epic Passage from Baja to Siberia.”

     “What I like best about James Dorsey’s stories is that he tells you not only where he travels, but why he travels. He has an innate ability to coax hidden truths from strangers, to absorb and reflect world cultures without judgment. This remarkable collection of essays allows a reader to share both the external and internal journey of a true adventurer.”

Diane Haithman, Former Staff Writer for the Los Angeles Times, Author of Dark Lady of Hollywood, and also, The Elder Wisdom Circle Guide for a Meaningful Life.
