What Readers Say about "Lost on Purpose" ('Verified Purchase' reviews on Amazon):

** 'I have no idea why i have not heard of this book, as this is all I read. And this will go down as one of my all-time favorites. Also, I read the entire book in half a day, which I never do. For me it was a combination of "The Kindness of Strangers", "Into the Wild", & "Travels Across America". If I could give it 10 stars, I would..' (a posted Amazon review)

** 'I have read multiple books on journeys similar to this, but they never got into the heart & soul of the journeyman. This book addresses not only the struggles with the environment but also with the mind. I’d follow Taylor on any adventure he chooses to write about...' (a posted Amazon review)

** Loved this man’s trip. Set a goal , persevered & accomplished it, learning more about himself & stretching his limits to the danger point. Real, emotions expressed without going overboard, but nevertheless quite real. I enjoyed the book. No bragging or ego tripping, just a man setting a tough goal for himself & suffering & enjoying the journey. Have a couple of friends that will enjoy it this Christmas!' (a posted Amazon review)

Pat Taylor's atypical adventures are underdog bestsellers & trending to a wider audience. Order "Lost on Purpose" now & live vicariously the 'Real-life Adventures of the Texas Yeti'.
