Record of Mishaps is the memoir of a misfit teenager on the run in 1966, a story of loss, exile, adventure and self-reliance.

At a time when America’s young men are rounded up for combat in an unpopular war, an 18-year-old hitchhiker drifts 22,000 often-frightening miles, pursuing a mystic’s higher knowledge.

His journey without a safety net traces a story arc embedded with historical events and numerous 1960s counterculture figures, culminating in a seeker’s transforming insight.
