About the Book

None of it was meant to be: the stories and anecdotes that appear in this book, my travels to far-flung other worlds, being face-to-face with hundreds of strangers. Yet here we are, and there I’ve been, and somehow, strangers became friends.

Meet Tom Mattson’s friends including Maribel, on a park bench in Havana; Braulio, a silver miner in Bolivia; Chema, a Guatemalan fisherman – and dozens more around the world. Discover the stories of their lives, their experiences, and their histories, so different from your own. Be charmed by the Minnesota storyteller who draws you into The Other Worlds with ease and who delights in sharing the sights, sounds, smells, and serendipities of his adventures with armchair – and active – travelers everywhere.

About the Author
Tom Mattson

Tom Mattson grew up in Biwabik, Minnesota. After receiving his Juris Doctor from the University of Minnesota, he spent years -- punctuated by sabbaticals for travel -- advocating on cases ranging from family law, price-fixing, fires, and explosions, to the death penalty and nuclear bomb cleanup and compensation. Tom has enjoyed a parallel career -- an ad hoc one that has its seeds in the Chevy and Greyhound explorations. He's ridden atop railroad boxcars in California, took the controls of a Peruvian locomotive, crawled through a Bolivian silver mine, and was hauled off in a Mexican police car for a Saturday night in the infamous Tijuana jail. He now divides his time between his Minnesota abode near Biwabik on a lake named Lost, his tin-roofed shack in the Guatemala mountains of the Maya people, and motorcycling the American and Canadian West -- and re-visiting friends in some of the 75 countries he's experienced.
