The third book from Graham Field, after the success of his first two books In Search of Greener Grass and Ureka comes Different Natures which takes you on three journeys. Each gives an honest and passionate insight into the evolution of a compulsive traveller. Looking for direction with the wrong eyes spawned Graham’s lust for wandering. The miles cleared his vision and the hunger for longer distances grew with an insatiable appetite for new experiences. Divulging tales from his diaries spanning a twelve year period of travel from the Arctic Circle to Mexico, Graham Field’s journeys are his life. Inevitably, these experiences increase his awareness as he passes through various natures of both a reluctant maturity and the extreme environments between his destinations. From midnight sun to darkest nights, there is as much diversity in these tales as common threads. Taste the addictive exhilaration of inhospitable environments.
The author has taken those innermost thoughts that many a traveller has (and writes in a person diary never to see the light of day again) and shares them with the reader in a very honest format.
He describes the journeys in such detail that he not only sucks you in and takes you along on his adventures but he reminds you of feelings, emotions and events encountered by your own journeys. He makes you feel better about all the things you have thought or done on such a two wheeled adventure but never felt appropriate to say out loud.
Very brave to allow the world into your inner world. Thanks for sharing and making us feel vaguely normal!
I want to go to Wyoming!
Graham confronts his own feelings and thoughts as he confronts each new experience on the road. Openly and honestly. Like any good storyteller manages to do to me, I find myself provoked into questionning some of my own beliefs and opinions. Whether I agree or not is missing the point. His books are as individual as the author, refreshingly different. Unique. But the world needs individuals and this book stands out in the same way he does. Highly recommended.
