"Diving off a Jamaican waterfall, evading a charging black rhino in the veldt, running naked through the streets of South Africa, nearly drowning off the coast of Brazilůsuch adventures and many more are recounted in this personal collection of travel essays about one man's journey following the cardinal winds. Infused with a dry sense of humor and an observant sense of place, these stories cascade in a torrent of thrilling events and breathtaking wonder."
