Latest Release – Walking to Woot
A Photographic Narrative Discovering New Dimensions for Parent-Teen Bonding
Jackie’s latest book helps the reader absorb a rare experience. Follow in the footsteps of Jackie and her teenage daughter Katherine as they offer a compulsively readable story of their conspiracy of curiosity and courage to explore the jungles of New Guinea. The story pierces time and place to treat the reader with an intimate peek inside a Stone-Age culture. Living in one of the most extraordinary and dangerous places on earth for four weeks, they realize the destination is not important. The richest treasure veins of life’s experiences can be mined away from home.
Travel is the book’s vehicle for the learning/growing process. It is the process of change, the awakening of a new dimension within them. Dramatic gains in self confidence and self sufficiency developed as these females responded creatively to challenges, overcame fear, raised tolerances for pain and discomfort, and found courage within their inner resources. The trekkers invite the reader to reconnect ourselves to our inner hearts. The book offers inspiration to parents and teens who, in trying to be so many things to so many people, lose themselves. In each other we see a reflection of our sixth sense, the passion for searching.
