In the 1960s, Gary McWilliams taught political science at an east coast university. In 1971, he “dropped out” and went traveling. He worked as a hard-rock miner, a deckhand on ocean going freighters, a beekeeper, a tree planter, a trail builder, a charter-boat captain, and a stone artist. He founded Stone Arts of Alaska in 1999, a small business “dedicated to the beauty of stone.”

Wanderlusting is one man's story, alternately funny & hair-raising, about his travels after he dropped out of graduate school in the 1970s. Gary McWilliams chose a working man's life, and worked side by side with an international cast of miners, sailors, & fishermen, also crossing paths with missionaries, smugglers and revolutionaries. His unusual adventures will keep you reading into the night.
