Since graduating from college with a journalism degree, Phil Cousineau's wanderlust has driven him to visit nearly one hundred countries as a backpacker, documentary filmmaker, travel writer, photographer, and art and literary tour leader. For him, travel provides what his mentor Joseph Campbell called "the key to the realm of the muses." Author of the bestselling travel book The Art of Pilgrimage, Cousineau continues to crisscross the world as a travel writer, a filmmaker, and the host of Global Spirit.The Book of Roads: A Life Made from Travel is the culmination of a lifetime of travel experiences, from the steel factories of Detroit to headhunting villages in the Philippines, the war-torn villages in the Balkans to the river roads of Canada once traversed by his voyageur ancestors. His rhapsodic travel stories place him in the league of fellow travelers who are also masterful writers, such as Pico Iyer, Jack Kerouac, Jan Morris, and Beryl Markham.
