"Jon's stories are wonderful. I would liken them to Jack Kerouac's, in that his stories make me want to seek adventure, damn the danger! I was so entertained I had to read his book straight through without stopping, so don't start to read it until you have several hours of free time..."
"This collection of short stories about the authors experience is an easy and fun reading for those that like to read about travelling adventures. I thoroughly enjoyed them and challenge the author to write his next collection."
"Few people can spin a tale with such vibrant colors. If you ever wanted to be an adventurer but just couldn't this is the book for you. A must read and one you can do in a short afternoon and then want to read it all over again. I nominate Jon White for Oprah's Book Club.'
From the Author
This, my first book was written at the request of friends and family for many years, hence the title! I really expected to sell maybe fifty copies total. But it gained traction on its own and has sold many times that since it was published in February 2012.
I enjoyed the writing experience, the words flowed into sentences, then paragraphs, then complete stories. I would find myself at four in the morning, quietly working on my laptop, while my wife slept through the night.
Using ship logs, old notes and emails, I re-lived the tales and adventures and apparently my writing style was embraced by people all over the world. I received emails from Australia, Norway, Argentina, even Afghanistan asking for a sequel. That is now available...
