Product Description

Product Description

Travel the length and breadth of the country as you get to know the true America.

You are given a word and picture portrait that faithfully depicts the nation.

Every photograph is an original that have never been published before. Unlike most travel books which just use 'stock shots' that make you feel you have seen it all before.

They have been painstakingly selected to give you pictures that have a story behind them, that reveal a new aspect of American life. In addition, they are matched to the text so that you can see what the author is talking about.

In this book you'll travel a vast country.

From Chicago's lakeside where the young city dwellers sun themselves, to hidden wild beaches in Florida. From the huge metropolises of Washington DC and New York City to the open spaces of the mid West and the Colorado Rockies.

You'll make tracks across a seemingly endless Texas and take in the surprisingly long history of the Deep South. While on the West Coast you'll join the sun worshippers soaking up 'the good life' on idyllic beaches and coves.

Here is the United States as it is today. Get to know the new country in the making as David Stuart Ryan brings its inhabitants, sights and sounds vividly and unforgettably alive.

Reviews:
========

"The book gives an up to date impression of America often with an emphasis on the slightly off-beat. All aspects of American life are covered, from cowboy country to the burial of the unknown soldier from Vietnam in Washington, from Dallas to Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, Mexico Way and Mardi Gras have attention as do the surfing beaches and Daytona speedway.


The reader will discover just how diverse the USA is and the book paints a vivid picture of the 'real' America unlike many other travel guides.

David Stuart Ryan travelled over 10,000 miles researching this book during three extended tours of America. He is one of America's prize winning poets.

The photographs in the book are truly impressive and each is an original that has never before been published. Altogether a most enjoyable book and one which it will be a pleasure to re-read.'

A review from 'The Book Exchange"

"I look forward to reading it' - President Bill Clinton

More About the Author

Hot off the presses, or is it the digital electronic worldwide communication machine? is a novel '1967' about the 'annus mirabilis' of the world of progressive rock and progressive politics.

Here is your chance to relive, or visit for the first time, the most heady, explosive, revolutionary, revelatory and epochal period in our history.

Many of the seeds sown then are only now coming to fruition.

The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, the Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, Scott McKenzie and numerous other bands make an appearance in a book that brings it all unforgettably alive, it is a rollicking read you are really going to enjoy.

And yes, there is a lot of sex, drugs and rock'n'roll, this is 1967 man.



"The author is a natural writer able to transmit an almost lurid emotion and imagination."
London Weekend Television

=======================================================================

The arrival of the Kindle bookstore has opened up great possibilities
for the books which I thought would no longer be available, once the print runs had run out, as most have.

So I am busy putting them onto the bookstore, but the arrival of Kindle has also opened up a whole new avenue for showing you my poetry in its original
illustrated format - in glowing color too if you have the latest ereaders.

I would especially draw your attention to 'Postcards from around the Globe', 'New New World' about Australia and 'Home - and a journey to the USA'-
the illustrations really bring the poems to life in an unprecedented way
thanks to the wonders of the new computer age.

Poetry
=========
The Sphere of the Moon Goddess
==============================

A reproduction of the notebook of poetry and illustrations
created on a year-long visit overland to India, Pakistan, Nepal, Kathmandu, Bihar, Kashmir, Varanasi, Mumbai and Goa.
There are over 120 original illustrations.

The Conjunction of the Sun and Moon
======================================

This is a book that could only really exist in the digital age. With over 150 sumptuous color illustrations to go with the 150 poems, you are plunged into a highly sensual world. It is an art book as much as a poetry book, each
color illustration has been faithfully reproduced from the original.

It is an exploration of the nature of the attraction between man and woman. Over the course of a year you will go on a journey that is curiously in sync with the seasons of the natural world.

Along the way encounters, hints, messages, hopes, disasters, premonitions,
intense coming togethers and equally intense partings figure in this no holds barred portrayal of love and loss, attraction and repulsion.

It is a description of the human condition that takes you to strange places indeed as you enter the second of The Seven Worlds.

Postcards from around the Globe
===============================

Set out on a journey overland to Asia - including India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal, Malaysia, Thailand and Hong Kong.

The illustrations take you there, richly sensuous and mystically allusive in turns, you can see for yourself what the poems are talking about. 100 original full color illustrations illuminate the path and the way in the
third of the Seven Worlds.

New New World
=============
-the land of Australia and the islands of Fiji


David Stuart Ryan draws on his Australian heritage (his mother, grandmother
and great grandmother were all Australian) to bring you the strange seductive atmosphere of the lucky country into a spellbinding combination of vivid
pictures and highly philosophical poetry about what it means to be in this
most ancient of lands.

This exploration is followed by a visit to the Fiji islands which begins to place Australia where it really is, the glorious South Pacific.

Home - and a journey to the USA
=================================
How the UK looks after some years away, the old Roman town begins to emerge in poetry that takes a fresh look at the English experience, before a journey to the USA switches the perspective again and we are off on another exploration
of the body and spirit.
