World Traveler for 7 years, Joel R. Dennstedt now writes fulltime. He once carried all he owned in a backpack and a duffel. He and his photographer brother spent 6 years trekking south from Yucatan, Mexico - through jungles, deserts, forests, coastlines, and mountains - to the end of the world in Patagonia. Together, they then slo-traveled from Iceland to Macedonia. His interest is for all native and local peoples. His sole passion is for books.
