Hooked on a Drumbeat
Trafford Publishing, 2008 - Biography & Autobiography - 228 pages
Have you ever felt like your life was passing you by? Your real life. That you were somehow not being true to your innermost self? Ever had a wish to just pack up and explore your greatest desires? The author did just that, when he left the security of a good job and a picture perfect lifestyle in Northern Canada, in trade for a life of uncertainty deep in the heart of Venezuela. In Ron's first book, Hooked On a Drumbeat, the truth literally becomes stranger than fiction. His travels help him, not only experience a different culture, climate and geography, but to also discover an exciting inner journey of the heart.
Hooked on a Drumbeat has it all: miracles, corruption, the sex trade, restless spirits, enduring angels, and a whole mixture of human frailties. Ron's account of his journey touches on subjects seldom mentioned in many contemporary travel stories, helping to unveil the human condition thread by thread. From gold mining in the Yukon, to diamond mining in the Gran Sabana of Venezuela; from seismic oil exploration in Northern Venezuela, to the Sahara desert in Algeria, the tale unfolds in ways that the author could never have imagined. His remarkable adventures are enriched by his ability to bring to life historical accounts through his own personal experience. Ron's ability to convey such a vivid sense of place is reflected in every word and is what makes Hooked on a Drumbeat such an addictive read.
