Product description

Product Description

Straddling the 'Hound is an account of four solo bus trips within the U.S. taken by ageing physician and road-addict Trevor Watson. Travel with him as, with open heart and curious mind, he explores the netherworld of long-distance bus travel. Whether it's chatting with outlaws and mystics on the bus, hobnobbing with Mormons in Utah, hanging out at the end of the line in Key West, or plunging into Mark Twain's Mississippi - you'll find the author's love of people, oddity and language a genuine pleasure. Hop on the bus - you're in for a treat.

About the author: Dr. Trevor Watson's insatiable curiosity and itchy feet have led him to travel and work in many parts of the world. He has practised medicine for over 40 years, and has a keen interest in psychology, philosophy and spirituality. He and his wife, Cynthia, have been married for 46 marvellous years. He has two children and four grandchildren. Allowing for sensible buffer-zones, they all live near one another on Vancouver Island.
