Review:

Years before he became a mythology expert and household name, Joseph Campbell journeyed to India. He was nearly 50, at a career crossroads, and after 10 years studying Indian art and philosophy he was finally going to India seeking the transcendent (Brahman), the mysteries of India. Instead he found the stark realities of baksheesh culture. His journal of those six months is the closest Campbell ever came to an autobiography. It's a diary of his adventures, insights, and ponderings; it's a window into the India of 1954 and the Joseph Campbell of 1954--both are intriguing places to visit.

From the Publisher:

The personal journal of the renowned mythologist Joseph Campbell during his year of travel in Asia in the fifties, enhanced by more than 60 previously unpublished photographs, specially commissioned maps, and illustrations redrawn from Campbell's own hand.
