Doug Alderson Writes and Speaks

Janisse Ray has an article titled "Walking the moccasin way" in the 25 June 2007 issue of The Reformer out of Brattleboro, VT. The article describes the Native American spiritual quest taken up by Doug Alderson who, as an 18 year old solo hiker on the Appalachian Trail "became so lonely that he began to talk to rocks and trees. Then a strange thing happened: he heard a response."

Alderson wrote a book titled The Vision Keepers: Walking for Native Americans and the Earth, just published by Quest Books. He was up from his home in Florida, and in Brattleboro at the Marlboro College Technology Center in Brattleboro on Tuesday, June 26 to talk about the book abd sign copies. "This event is co-sponsored by Know Media, Vermont Earth Institute (V.E.I.), the Manitou Project and Marlboro College Technology Center."
