Never Leaving Laramie
Travels in a Restless World
Oregon State University Press
Never Leaving Laramie takes readers from a small university town in Wyoming into the human and natural landscapes of remote and dangerous areas in the world. John Haines bicycles across Tibet and kayaks the length of West Africa's Niger River. He rides the Trans-Siberian train across the former Soviet Union and survives a traumatic train accident in the Czech Republic. For two decades, the author lived a restless life exploring pockets of the world in transition, always finding a route back to Laramie, the home that shaped him--a place he loved but needed to leave, and in the end never left.
John W. Haines has spent most of his career breaking down financial and other barriers for people. He led the domestic work of the global relief and development agency Mercy Corps for 15 years, where he built programs for refugees in farming and for people reentering society from prison. Never Leaving Laramie is his first book.
