Michael J. Roads was born in England, and from the time he was a child delving into the mysteries of a hidden, silent Nature, he has spent his life as an outdoorsman. During a decade of farming in Tasmania, Michael went through profound changes, gradually becoming attuned to the spirit of the land. This change was to take him away from farming and into a search for Self. Roads’ life now consists of writing and giving talks and seminars throughout Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Europe.
