Cannot Stay by Kevin Oderman

SKU 978-0-9897532-8-9


This is a book of journeys, but it is not a guidebook.

In twelve essays, Cannot Stay delves into why we leave our front porch in the first place. It speaks to the experience of travel, to what it means to shake loose of your identity and stuff all you need in a worn daypack. Cannot Stay bears witness to how travel reawakens us to the world by revealing the strange in the familiar and the familiar in the strange.
