Editorial Reviews

Review

"Journey Man is travel writing at its best - honest, gritty, informative, and inspiring." ForeWord Reviews (11/19/2012)

"Journey Man: A World Calling is an extraordinary true-life adventure, highly recommended especially for the armchair travelers everywhere." The Midwest Book Review (12/2012)

"He [Claassen] tells his stories so compellingly that readers feel they are with him in the jungle, or on the sidewalks of New York. Claassen takes us on travels from 1974 through 2006, and each stop offers a slice into his entertaining life. He leaves us wanting more stories of his travels and travails." St. Louis Post-Dispatch (12/22/2012)

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (2/18/2013). "This self-described "global village project" of an odyssey spans three decades' worth of travels in nine countries and the narrator's evolution throughout his pilgrimages and spiritual rebirths. Not for the casual tourist, Claassen is drawn to challenging situations. Ever conscious of the reader, he continuously provides background facts and texts to support the events of his episodes. His collection of adventures will satisfy any reader interested in a spiritual retreats or a distinctive traveling experience."

William Claassen takes the reader on an interesting ride through the minds and good manners of perfect strangers. I never really left Kansas, but could relate to many of the individuals Mr. Claassen got to know during his travels. I have never had an interest in knowing what it is like in a community where faith is the only hope of survival. I stopped going to church when I was eight and after reading some of the ceremonial process that reminded me of what I had to suffer through - I am glad only to return for weddings and funerals. I can not decide if he is trying to find out who he is or who everyone else that he does not understand is. I find his trip to Alaska and later his relationship with a young child most reveling to the possibility of a journey man making a home and having a family. I look forward to hearing more from William Claassen.
