Edward Readicker-Henderson is a frequent contributor to National Geographic Traveler, Sierra, and Art & Antiques; other publication credits include AARP: The Magazine, Budget Travel, and -- despite his polar fleece aesthetic -- Modern Bride. He believes in ghosts, bigfoot, and even elves, but not the Loch Ness monster. Listen to the show and find out why.
In 2007 Best American Travel Writing honored Edward for "The Quietest Place on Earth," as well as "Uses for Dirty Underwear." In 2003, the book noted "Why You're Here Now," and the next year, he won a Lowell Thomas Award for "Under the Protection of the Cow Demon." He's also recipient of a Northern Lights Award, for the best magazine travel story on Canada, in 2007.
U.S. Poet Laureate Rita Dove remarked that his reflective style was "like watching a particularly elegant sleight-of-hand." The compliment was especially apt, since Edward can also juggle five balls and eat fire.
A book collecting his work, Under the Protection of the Cow Demon is available from Walkabout Publishing and Amazon.com.
