Press Release Summary: AMERICAN TRAPPED IN NEPALESE CIVIL WAR
Press Release Body: (SEATTLE, WA)-During the Nepalese civil war, tension between the Maoists and the government were at an all-time high, and so the military imposed a curfew for the country-with severe penalties for anyone who disobeyed.
Gary Garner, an American vagabond for the twenty-first century and author of the new book Through the Eyes of Madness, came head-to-head with an angry Nepalese mob the night before he was supposed to be en route to Mount Everest.
While searching the streets of Nepal after curfew for a shopkeeper who he believed to be in possession of his passport, Mr. Garner was surrounded by countless angry men who thought he had come to rob the shopkeeper. The entire mob scene and its nail-biting conclusion is one of many stories punctuated with humor and suspense in Mr. Garner's new book.
Five years ago, Mr. Garner left his multimillion dollar business to adventure around the world. Now homeless and jobless, he is living the life of a vagabond as he travels from country to country. During his exploration he has experienced:
Witnessing a brutal murder on the South China Sea His own near-death at the heights of Mt. Everest Being ambushed and robbed in Costa Rica by very unusual suspects Countless other harrowing escapes that have illustrated valuable and moving life lessons.
Each chapter of Through the Eyes of Madness richly details the real life-and-death adventures Mr. Garner experienced throughout his journey, many of which were seemingly un-survivable.
"My book also has an intriguing twist: I have a mysterious surprise waiting for anyone who can decipher the encrypted codes in my journal, which point to physical clues planted around the world," says Mr. Garner.
From beginning to end, the book is laced with a visual and mathematical secret code-but unlike its fictional cousins, this book's secret is very real.
"These past few years have been so fantastical and life-altering that even I have trouble believing it," admits Mr. Garner. "But that's why I kept the journals and constructed the book in the way that I did. Now, others can share in the adventure."
