This is my attempt at travel, my attempt at writing, my attempt at, well, at attempt itself. This is not the perfect story. With trial comes error. But these errors add up to something greater. These errors add up to truth of self and conviction.
On the surface, Prelude to Tomorrow is a travel memoir, a reflection upon Paul Hudson's trips around the world during summer breaks from college. But he quickly reveals a deeper focus, not just on America, Africa, and Europe, but on friendship, youth, and the search for one's identity and path in life.
Hudson guides us through his rewarding adventures: road-tripping with three lifelong friends across the United States, from Georgia to Utah; working on a cattle ranch in Montana; admiring the spectacular animal kingdom native to the plains of Kenya; studying at the University of Innsbruck in Austria; and carousing with his college band at Lake Tahoe.
A vivid and vibrant travel memoir, Prelude to Tomorrow reminds us that our experiences from the past are not just snapshots of a distant time-they are the very foundation for who we will become.
