Literature often describes places we are curious about, regardless of whether we know them or not. This blog maps the journeys laid out in selected books and offers reflections corresponding to the various stops. Happy traveling!

I was born in Eureka, California and adopted when I was 2.  I grew up in Fort Bragg, California, and graduated high school in 1982.  I finished a BA in English at Santa Clara University, and then did two years of volunteer service with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps in inner-city Milwaukee.  I lived in Milwaukee from 1986-1995.  I got married in 1995 to Megan Kamerick and moved to San Antonio, Texas where I worked for a non-profit organization while I picked up an MA in International Relations at St. Mary's University.  In 2000, I started a Ph.D. program in Political Science at the University of New Orleans and we lived there until 2004.  Megan accepted a job in Albuquerque 2004, and we have lived there up to the present.  I completed my Ph.D. in 2008 and am currently working at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine.

"I wasn`t made for these times." That was B. Wilson and he sang on these years. What he missed was prob. the 60`s. I was made in the 40`s but can`t remember the Jack Kerouac`s decade. I`m missing those years. On the road gives me the decade`s feelings. Your site makes the same deep impact. Thanks a lot. Reiska

I'm curious to know how a running nerd from Fort Bragg became interested in such diverse subjects as Jack Kerouac and the Donner Party? Give me a call please.
