A Transcendental Journey (Twentieth Anniversary)
Stephen Evans, author
There was no plan: just an old car, an old map, an old book, and the beginning of a new life. A Transcendental Journey is the quirky account of one man’s meander across America, encountering natural wonders during the day and the essays of Ralph Waldo Emerson at night. Throughout the narrative, Emerson’s life and thought are explored through his essays: Self-Reliance, The Poet, Experience, Nature, and Circles. These famous works shape the experience of the journey, just as the journey shapes the author’s experience of Emerson, a combination that creates a life-altering, truly Transcendental journey. "Any journey to enlightenment is a comedy."
