About UNDER THE GREAT ELM – A Life of Luck & Wonder:
Sweeping from the Illinois countryside to the plains and mountains of the American West, from the cafes of Paris to the Gaza Strip, and from the tropics of India to the rhythms of Broadway, this is a story of hope and inspiration for our time.
Swift, lyrical, often astonishing, it is a tale of high adventure, of love lost and found, a lifelong journey of enlightenment, and remarkable interspecies encounters.
Laced with a sense of wonder and humor, this is a compelling and unique masterpiece of nonfiction that all readers will enjoy.
