Crossroads: Becoming a Geographer - a travelogue by Don Gogniat

KDP Countdown Promo: Aug. 17-24, 2015

Don Gogniat is not only passionate about visiting new places, but also absorbing the lessons those locales near and far have to offer about his own life and the greater narrative of humanity. The educator has also spent a significant part of his life teaching others (while also learning from them) about how to appreciate different views of the world.

In “Crossroads,” Gogniat’s condensed what he’s learned through decades of travel and life in academia into a roadmap for a more holistic and deeper understanding of the world around us. He focuses on 10 joyful travel tips with short personal stories to illustrate the significance of each tip.

The tips and stories allow the reader to see the world just a little differently no matter what new environment they may be experiencing.  Also, it contains short lessons in finding ways to appreciate what you are looking at – a primer in cultural geography, a discipline that allows us to understand why places are as they are and form stronger connections with the places we visit.
