A Note from the Million Mile Walker: The Guatemala Reader is Live on Kickstarter!

Friends, Colleagues, and Writers Around the World

I’ve been unavailable for the last several months finishing up The Guatemala Reader, now available on Kickstarter! Please share the project with friends and contacts, as it includes a brief video and background information on the making of this project:


After traveling, working, and writing about Guatemala for 50 years, I’ve focused this project on some of the country’s extraordinary people and amazing stories.   The purpose of the project includes:

  1. Educate and inspire people to learn more about Guatemala.
  2. Introduce extraordinary lives and stories to generate more empathy for those heading north.
  3. Inspire others to help Guatemala actively.

Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform that provides “creatives,” such as writers, filmmakers, and video game producers, an opportunity to connect directly with their audience and to promote direct sales.

I’ll run a pre-campaign for two weeks and then the actual campaign for another two weeks, with a few “updates’ in between. I’ll also resume the Million Mile Walker Dispatch.

Your early support is not just a contribution. It’s a vote of confidence in this vision, and it will generate interest and credibility for this project. I can’t thank you enough for being part of this journey.

You can find my 80 book reviews and 28 articles, plus several videos and photos, on my website: http://millionmilewalker.com. “Follow” me on Twitter—at https://twitter.com/millionmile and Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/millionmilewalker/ for the latest international affairs and literature. And, as always, if you’ve read “Different Latitudes: My Life in the Peace Corps and Beyond” and My Saddest Pleasurees: 50 Years on the Road,  rate them on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and GoodReads,
