Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Aa a young man, John Francis witnessed the devastating effects of a 1971 oil spill in San Francisco Bay. He stopped using motorized transportation and began walking everywhere. A few months later, he took a vow of silence that lasted seventeen years. Through his silence and walking he learned to listen. Thus began his pilgrimage on behalf of the environment and world peace?an interior journey that was also a walk across North and South America, from youth to manhood, from wondering to deep convictions about social and environmental justice. Planetwalker is the inspirational story of a young man's call to public service and his decision to make a difference. It shows how this decision affects his life and the lives of the people he meets and ripples outward around the world. We grow with John as he develops the courage to act on the deepest voice within him and allows his destiny to unfold.
