This book records the first 30 years of John Valentine's life; a period which includes his early medical training, overseas travel and practice. The title refers to the spiritual journey; it begins with his early indoctrination into Catholicism and the negative effect bullying in a Catholic college had on him. The other journey is a physical one; whether John is wandering around the atomic bomb-loaded bays on Tinian Island, traversing frozen roads in the Yukon, visiting a Geisha house, a Mexican bull fight or working with the lepers on various Micronesian islands, the story reflects his fascination and enjoyment of different cultures.
