Tales Of The Modern Nomad – Monks, Mushrooms & Other Misadventures is a wild and colorful journey where veteran backpacker and travel host John Early blends his personal creative expression with insight and storytelling dedicated to all universal travelers and abstract thinkers.

This is not your typical travel book. Modern Nomad captures the ridiculous and enlightening escapades of a decade of world travel among a myriad of cultures in a collection of prose, photos, lyrics and sketches.

Not for the travel faint of heart, Nomad is a cheeky ride—from the awkward (…This Must Be A Monk Thing) to the sublime (The Fourth Dimension of Machu Picchu) to the terrifying (How to Get Robbed in Mexico) to the psychedelic and spiritual (The Call of Ayahuasca), John’s journeys will inspire, entertain and provoke you toward your own.
John Early is a musician, tour manager and author of the cult travel book 'Tales of the Modern Nomad - Monks, Mushrooms & Other Misadventures'. John is based out of his hometown Saskatoon, Saskatchewan; however, his world travels, like his writing and projects in life, always define new territory. Some of the roles John has taken on include emceeing major music festivals, national tour manager for Nintendo, entertaining on cruise ships in the Caribbean, touring on the 2010 Olympic Torch Relay across Canada, and managing adventure travel tours in Asia and Central America. From Bangkok to Zapopan, a journal and his lactose-intolerant guitar, Norma, have always been at hand. John's formal education consists of a Bachelor of Commerce in Marketing and Management at the University of Saskatchewan and ESC Rouen, France. Since then, it has been John’s decade of globe trotting and the people he’s encountered through which he has found his real education and reason to smile in life. Tales of the Modern Nomad is his first book. (Follow John on Instagram @johntearly)

"In this colorful collection of anecdotes, Early has perfectly captured the essence of travelling: lust for adventure, trust in our common humanity, and a healthy dose of humor. If this captivating book of travel gems doesn't inspire you to start packing your bags, we don't know what will!”
-- Irene Broer (Chief Editor, Gute Leute Magazine, Hamburg, Germany)

"Every once and awhile something happens in ones life to completely change the way you look at things. Sometimes bad and sometimes good events take place to make this happen. This book is most definitely the good, this book made me laugh, cry, contemplate and most importantly find all the good in life and what it offers. This book spoke directly to me and how I had a different outlook in life. It made me want to travel and see what else is out there, it made me aware of things I have not yet been aware of, it showed such passion for love and travel it is impossible not to relate to something in this book. If you are a seasoned traveler or someone who has never been on a plane or boat this is a must have. The words come through with a sort of "at home compassion" to the places and people John had met, the ups and downs, everywhere in between. Bravo John."
