9781878995117: Laughing Down Lonely Canyons

"This is a book for the barely brave like me who refuse to abandon their dream... It is for those who want to make of life the joy it was meant to be, who refuse to give up no matter the cost..." James Kavanaugh. Perhaps none of Kavanaugh’s poetry books has so powerfully mingled pain and joy, despair and hope, fear and courage. Countless numbers have called it their release to recover from tragedy, divorce, serious illness, addiction, and to begin a new life, or to face death fearlessly.

About the Author:

James Kavanaugh was ordained and actively ministered for ten years as a Catholic Priest before attending Catholic University in Washington D.C. Working on his second doctoral degree, he wrote an article for the Saturday Evening Post, entitled, "I am a Priest, and I want to marry." The article questioned the practice of celibacy among priests. The year was 1967, the height of the sexual revolution. Although it was written under a pseudonym and even his closest friends and family were not aware of the author, it was received with such commotion and outrage, the secret would not be kept for long. Soon Simon and Schuster was calling for a book deal. Amid personal confusion, James took a leave of absence from the priesthood, packed his VW bug and headed for California to write books.
