About this title
A unique travel autobiography, including 77 color photographs, 72 Black & White photographs, and numerous maps, Escape from the Happy Cannibal treats readers to in-depth spiritual and cultural observations gleaned first-hand by Ron Miller as he traveled for three years through over 80 countries on six continents.
Having climbed active volcanoes, trekked with man-eating tigers, and narrowly escaped Rwandan rebels, Miller's journeys are colorful tales of travel coupled with perceptive insights into societies and peoples. The book also serves as an insider's guide into the culture of backpacking.
"Ron Miller has traveled to many more places, seen more of nature's grandeur, and experienced more of humanity in a few years than most of us will in a lifetime," said S.L. Baer, author of Appalachian Spring: A Novel. "With each new country visited, the reader senses that he is coming closer to a destination, not a place on a map, but a destination of mind and soul."
During his travels through poverty, tyranny, racism, and societal revolutions, Miller learned not only from his own experiences, but also from the unique perspectives of the fascinating personalities he met along the way. As his horizons broadened, so did his faith in something greater.
"I believe that this book will effect a positive change on people's lives," said Miller. "It documents how my life changed for the better, and alludes to where everyone can access a positive force that changes lives."About the Author:
When Ron Miller decided to exchange his life of comfort and security for an extended global journey, he never imagined the cultural trials he would face or the spiritual lessons he would learn. Immersing himself deeply into a potpourri of international cultures, Miller felt compelled to ask himself: "If I had been born into a society of cannibals, would I question that society's behaviors and values, or would I simply be a happy cannibal?" Miller searched the entire world for the guidance that supersedes culture and he found that wisdom in the last-and most obvious-place he looked.
