About The Author
Doug Ten Rose has hitchhiked around America for 40 years, encountering:
Native American wise people
An all-lesbian rock band playing a concert for the deaf
The modern day Robin Hood
And a whole lot more...
These and many other amazing characters are described in Fearless Puppy on American Road.
"Ten" was also rescued and adopted by a temple full of Monks and Nuns in Southeast Asia. He stayed there for a half-year, although not studying Buddhism (certainly not in any conventional sense!).
Read more about that in his second offering: Reincarnation Through Common Sense.
What else is there to say?
Well, a lot.
Here's a snippet so you can dip your toes in the water - it's from the foreword of Fearless Puppy:
"Why would a 15 year old boy with a New York City native’s knowledge of transportation systems shun both public and private transport and opt to spend the next 35 years hitchhiking throughout North America?
Why would anyone bypass the relative ease and safety of bus, train, or a car of his own and open himself to all manner of possible disaster by braving the whims of fate and the moods of passersby? I’ll tell you why.
I have attended 8 different colleges and universities.
I’ve learned more in other people’s cars."
