    Eric Hansen survives a cyclone on a boat off the Australian coast, cradles a dying man in Calcutta, and drinks mind-altering kava in Vanuatu. He helps a widower search for his wife's wedding ring amid plane-crash wreckage in Borneo and accompanies topless dancers on a bird-watching expedition in California. From the Maldives to Sacramento, from Cannes to Washington Heights, Eric Hansen has a way of getting himself into the most sacred ceremonies and the most candid conversations.

Unexpected Joys Of Man's Humanity to Man

by RELinUSA on Sep 27, 2008

By the time my copy of Lap Dancer arrived through Alibris, I had read one of Eric Hansen's earlier books, Stranger In The Forest On Foot Across Borneo. I wanted to buy and read everything Hansen has written after hearing him read an excerpt from Lap Dancer (pp. 17-18) on Public Radio's "What Do You Know? this Spring and ordered a copy of each book available, based on that reading and interview. Hansen shares his gift of explaining through example unexpected joys and personal growth resulting from his showing humanity to his fellow men and women in his experiences through acceptance, appreciation, and incorporation of local customs and cultures. Read all you can by him. You will be glad you did!
