A self-proclaimed Renaissance man, Steve McAllister has taken Attention Deficit Disorder to new heights. After getting a degree in Psychology from Mars Hill College iin North Carolina and studying Film Production Technology at Valencia Community College in Orlando, Florida, he put his film career on hold to pursue his dream of becoming a traveling vagabond, a journey which culminated in the book you are now holding. After a year and a half of travel and ink, he spent a year and a half in Los Angeles, working in television production, playing on stages, and honing his skills as a screenwriter. Steve returned to his hometown of Sarasota in 2004, and is constantly seeking out other creative endeavors.

If you enjoy travel, adventure, spiritual awakening, or just a story of a boy growing up, this is a book I would recommend.
The author brought me directly into his journey, offering me the sights of his adventures and the insights of his heart with a writing style easy to read and hard to put down. I carried the book in my bag and read it everywhere I had a spare moment. This book is like that.
So many times throughout the story I thought to myself, my father (a christian) would love this or I can't wait to show this to my old roommate (who shares my appreciation for humor and good writing) or I have to tell my friend (a fellow train-hopper) to get this book!
"The Rucksack Letters" transcends politics, religion, culture, class and sexuality without forgetting any of it. I finished the book with a little highway dust on me, feeling a little lighter in my step. I'm glad I bought it and am thinking that I should have taken two for the road.
