Sinopsis: Tales & Flukes from Life in the Trees, is the first in a four book series that depicts life at its flukiest. Each book is conceived as a fractal of the whole, and all are inspired by the author's colorful life, from his earliest impressions that led him to science and mathematics, to living in nature and environmental activism. In forty-two vignettes the author with humor and unabashed bravura brings us to his unique view of the post-modern world. This prequel to the manuscript that won the prestigious Over-all Best Piece at the Maui Writers Conference of 1994 is a pleasure to hold. 286 pages in a comfortable soft bound 8 x10 inch format with brilliant glossy cover, the book is artfully designed and graced with many color photos, poems, and paintings. Whimsical. Poignant. Outrageous. Child-like. Profound. Free. Slightly risqué. Humane. Inspired by Nature.
About the Author: Born in 1935 on the California coast during the Depression to educated parents, Jim grew up in a loving household of modest means where both Mom and Dad made do with civil service jobs, simple pleasures, and offbeat adventures. Four fundamental traits have shaped his life: a keen intelligence; a whimsical nature; poor eyesight, albeit correctible; and a physique like Adonis; all leading to his unique view of the world and a remarkable confidence in it. He attended public schools, earned a Master's degree in mathematics, taught high school math, began to write in the sixties, then dropped out and moved to Maui in 1970. Through the years his life has assumed mythic proportions, being revered for his innate nobility, humor, and goodness. He stopped cutting his beard twenty years ago. Jim vows to return to his treehouse where he lived for nineteen years and wrote this book. For now, he lives on a small farm with his family, three cats, flocks of chickens, monarch butterflies, and random herds of feral deer.
