About the Author
Edward Readicker-Henderson is a frequent contributor to National Geographic Traveler, Sierra, and Art & Antiques; other publication credits include AARP: The Magazine, Budget Travel, and despite his polar fleece aesthetic Modern Bride. Best American Travel Writing honored Edward in 2007 for "The Quietest Place on Earth," as well as "Uses for Dirty Underwear." In 2003, the book noted "Why You're Here Now," and the next year, he won a Lowell Thomas Award for "Under the Protection of the Cow Demon." He's also recipient of a Northern Lights Award, for the best magazine travel story on Canada, in 2007. U.S. Poet Laureate Rita Dove remarked that his reflective style was "like watching a particularly elegant sleight-of-hand." The compliment was especially apt, since Edward can also juggle five balls and eat fire.
