About this title

Synopsis:

Outback to Asia is the true story of a Vietnam war dissenter (the author) who left a career and home in America in 1972 in search of the truth about communism and Vietnam. The ¡®trip¡¯ begins with lofty ideals and fervent convictions but those values melt in the face of obstacles, temptations, and adventures along the way traversing three continents. The mission to reach the killing fields of Asia leads the author into the depths of dysentery in Mexico, the enchantment of lovely ladies on the Great Barrier Island of New Zealand and the perils of crossing the Outback of Australia in a 1951 Rover touring sedan. Broken and discouraged the author finds hope stranded on an Aboriginal settlement and purpose in a providential meeting in Adelaide, Australia. These adventures set the table for a new level of providential confrontations manifest in the killing fields of Asia in Laos and Bangladesh and the spiritual dominions of Buddhism, Hinduism and Lamaism. The ultimate contest awaits the homecoming prodigal/pilgrim when he is forced to contend with his own spiritual heritage as an American.

Stuart Dick is a graduate of George Fox Evangelical Seminary. He lives in the Blue Mountains near Meacham with his wife, Julie and daughter, Jubilee. Two daughters are married and two sons are in college. He is an itinerant minister, coach and carpenter. Outback to Asia is his first novel.
