Summary

At age 92, spiritual trailblazer Huston Smith takes readers behind the scenes of his near century of adventurous seeking. Born to missionaries in China in 1919, few have done as much as Smith to explore and share the world's religious and spiritual traditions - and none have done so with such accessibility, wonder, and delight. Here, in the company of avid fellow seeker Phil Cousineau, Smith looks back on his extraordinary life, describing riveting scenes from around the world (from small town revival meetings in the rural Midwest and Native American sweat lodges to India, Africa, Tibet, and Japan) and magical encounters with unforgettable characters (including Pete Seeger, Martin Luther King Jr, AA cofounder Bill Wilson, Joseph Campbell, and Reuben Snake). He also - with undiminished enthusiasm and eloquence - looks forward, inspiring readers to not just seize the day, but seize it rejoicingly.
