Travels in an American Imagination: The Spiritual Geography of Our Time
Lee Foster’s travel literary book is Travels in an American Imagination: The Spiritual Geography of Our Time
The book won the Best Travel Commentary Award from the Bay Area Independent Publishers Association. Lee’s work has won from the Society of American Travel Writers eight Lowell Thomas Awards. Some observers consider these to be the highest awards in travel journalism. Lee has been named Lowell Thomas Travel Journalist of the Year.
In the book Lee asks: Do we live in the most wondrous and yet also the most horrific time ever to be alive?
In 25 essays, using places in his travels worldwide as the reference, Lee discusses this dual reality, a concern for Everyman and Everywoman in our time.
He visits Canaveral in Florida, where we sent a man to the moon. He also looks at the Atlantic Rain Forest outside Rio in Brazil, where we have eliminated most of the species because we have destroyed the habitat.
This book is Lee’s vision of our modern life, reflecting the ambivalent range of feelings that an informed, modern person will experience. Each chapter is preceded by a photo from Lee’s travels to the designated place.
The book (and modern life) presents a challenge to each reader: how to absorb the complexity of modern life and yet proceed with a healthy perspective to lead a productive life.
