Serendipitous Sabbatical is a university professor s memoir of an unconventional sabbatical leave rich in serendipity while he and his family live on a Minnesota farm. Half of his effort goes to university research, the other half to enriching experiences. Among them: the care and feeding of goats and a month-long camping trip to Florida. Emotions run high at the goat s departure, during post-sabbatical days when the professor and his wife become tolerant landlords, and finally when the farm and other property must be sold. Nature experiences play a dominant role during the course of the sabbatical and beyond.

ALAN M. CVANCARA, Ph.D., retired Professor Emeritus of Geology from the University of North Dakota, resides in Casper, Wyoming with his wife, Ella. Alan has written 15 books, two with his wife. Several follow a nature theme, as does this third novel. Artistic photography, largely nature and heritage subjects, represents another passion. He also plays the mandolin, guitar, fiddle, and banjo, and writes songs. Ella says Alan, although plagued by chronic back pain that forced him into early retirement, continues to write and proselytize about nature through his books. Photograph by Ella J. Cvancara © 2007.
