|In the spirit of Jack Kerouac, and Henry Miller, this is the highly acclaimed, modern autobiographical account of Haas' journey into the west coast wilderness, and into the uncharted regions of the soul. It is a true alchemical tale of adventure, misadventure, debauchery, wonder, mysticism, and miracles.
|"...an enthralling, true-life account... Because of its philosophical, emotional, and insightful analysis, In, and Of is very strongly recommended reading for students of metaphysics and the contemplative life." The Midwest Book Review, Reviewer's Choice

"...the voice crying out in the wilderness, bravely, madly, tenderly, ironically... the rapture...bewilderment, confusion, redemption and realization so densely, so wonderously well. The sense of vertigo, of pain, of tearful joy bowls me over." Jonathon Kerslake (editor, Lived Experience)
"Few like Jack Haas go the whole hog. ...imminently readable." Nandakumar Nayar (bookreviewclub.com)
|ROOTS AND WINGS: adventures of a spirit on earth
by Jack Haas
ISBN 0-9731007-4-5 Price: $16.00 US, 10.50 GBP, ebook $6.00 US. Category: Autobiography/Travel, Binding: perfect. Pages: 172. Copyright: 2003.
|This autobiographical work is both a journey in spirit, and a sojourn on earth. It is a rambling, recalcitrant, rapturous ode to "...this crazy, impossible, beautiful world..." as Haas describes it. The author's travels encompass a wide variety of places, including India, Nepal, New Zealand, Hawaii, Europe, Ireland, Israel, and Iceland. Largely, however, this is an alchemical tale of Haas' love and union with the spirit, with Christ, and with the earth itself.
|"...exquisitely balances poetic rapture and esoteric insight. ...a glorious illumination of our spiritual birthright." Benjamin Tucker (author of Roadeye)|
