Tony Robinson-Smith. British by origin, Canadian by marriage, Tony Robinson-Smith chronicled his adventures circling the earth without using aircraft in Back in 6 Years (Goose Lane Editions). Tony now teaches and runs in Fredericton, New Brunswick.

A worthy addition to the canon of running memoirs. An unprecedented journey across a singular spiritual landscape, enlivened by Robinson-Smith’s keen eye for detail, beautiful prose, and remarkable endurance. A travelogue that takes seriously its responsibility to its hosts. Thoughtful, mindful, compelling.
