Buz Donahoo is a larger than life character. From boyhood Miami to the beaches of exotic islands, the high mountain peaks of the Andes and Himalayas to the jungles of the Amazon, his life is painted upon a broad canvas. From a promising career as an architect to starting his own adventure tour company and guiding people to remote corners of the earth, Buz traces the contours of his life in A Ticket, A Pack and A Chart. Within the pages of this book we learn of the unique places he has traveled to and the equally unique people who have traveled there with him. While Buz Donahoo can paint in broad strokes with his words, he is at his best filling in the fine detail of the lives of the people he meets and the places he visits. He reminds us that it is often the little things we encounter in life and travel that leave a lasting impression. Whether studying at Taliesin, the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, serving as a lieutenant in Watts during the 1965 riots, dining on the small, sun-drenched patio of an isolated restaurant in the Greek Isles, or scaling the heights of Aconcagua, South America's highest peak, we feel as though we're right there beside Buz, taking in each moment and each detail with him. Living according to his own set of rules, Buz's view of the world is refreshing and entertaining. The contents of his book truly capture episodes from the life of a man who lives a borderless life. Once you have traveled with him through these pages, you may find yourself yearning to travel to some far-flung, exotic location for an adventure of your own.
