Unexpected Experiences in Unusual Places

Great Falls author publishes her second book.


Eileen Curtis

Local author Eileen Curtis has just published her second book, Roam: Mindful Adventuring Across the Globe. The Great Falls resident is an internationally published author whose diverse writings span arts and travel documentaries, magazine covers, business, and ghostwriting people’s memoirs. Among her many awards are a Peabody and the Silver Medal for the Arts from the Government of Austria. Her co-author Pat Williams owned an adventure travel agency for many years.

In the new book Roam, Curtis and Williams share seven journeys they deem the best of their visits to more than a hundred countries. Curtis cautions, “This is not the typical Paris and Rome travel experience. Our narrative invites readers to come along on vicarious journeys full of unexpected experiences in unusual places.” These include a safari in Kenya and Tanzania, a walk on the Spanish Camino, hiking in Peru’s mountains and jungles, traveling ancient Turkey and its underground cities, scuba-diving in the Galápagos, testing new philosophies in a Buddhist monastery in Nepal, and sampling the multicultural pulse of Santa Fe. Each dramatic story crosshatches themes of history, ritual, sublime panoramas, primitive spaces, high-wire adventure and reflective ruminations of mind and heart.

In the age of programmed living, Roam is a guide to finding what else is out there. Ultimately, “Roam” provides readers a pleasurable gambol to hidden places across the continents while engaging in life’s deepest questions. Stuck at home? Wanting to practice mindfulness? Roam is a perfect recipe for trying something new. For more information, visit www.eileencurtiswritings.com and www.PatsWisdom.com.
