Abstract:

"Half raucous adventure and half inspirational memoir, Rude awakenings documents an unusual pilgrimage. Two very different men - life-loving naturalist Nick Scott and austere Buddhist monk Ajahn Sucitto - together spend six months retracing the Buddha's footsteps through India. Told alternately by Sucitto and Scott in their distinctive voices, this story blends self-effacing humor, philosophical explorations, drama, travel observations, and the occasional giant fruit bat. Rude awakenings is a heady record of survival and spirituality set against the dramatic backdrop of one of India's most lawless regions."--Jacket.
