The author of WITH HITLER IN NEW YORK, LINCOLN'S DOCTOR'S DOG, I SURVIVED CARACAS TRAFFIC and other short story collections has kept a daily diary for forty years, since he was 18 in the summer of 1969. Here are entries from his diary for summers from 1976 to 1979 as he struggles with adulthood and his fledgling writing career, from his first acceptances by magazines to the hardcover publication of his book by a large New York publisher. Set in 1970s New York City, this is a vivid picture of what it was like to be a struggling young artist in that era.

A Summer in the High Sierra is Laurence Brauer's journal of a 38-day solo round trip of the timberline country from Yosemite to Kings Canyon, along with an Epilogue of a ten day trip one year later. Traveling outside cultural and religious doctrines, Brauer examines the assumptions of human societies and find that neither the rational deconstructions of science nor the leap of faith of religion contain the breadth and depth of nature's message. Seeing beyond our dualistic doctrines, he redefines our concepts of human nature, evolution, and spirituality.
