These engaging selections gathered from Henri Nouwen's travel writings offer new insights into the restless soul of a deeply spiritual man.

Whether Nouwen was describing the grim surroundings of post-Soviet Ukraine, mingling with senators in Washington, or meeting cocaine users in a South American prison, each situation tells a revealing story. Editor Michael Ford creates a journey from actual places Nouwen visited from the Ukraine to Bolivia via Europe, Canada, and the United States that depicts Nouwen's world as one of striking contrasts—one minute rubbing shoulders with the affluent, the next walking through lands of poverty. At each destination, we discover a man whose endless search for intimacy and beauty resonates deeply with our own.
