These books are two of a trilogy telling the story of Art as a Process of Discovery.  These two together provide a rare insight into the path of a career artist with a flare for adventure.  There is one more to come, The Voyage of the American Gypsy (Maiden).  It is being written now and will tie the story together, telling not only the Art of one man, but a systematic way of using the mind to create that which did not exist before.

 Them That Dream Together
by S L Van Ronk

Around the World on a Quest for Art, this is about magic, mysticism, and the inspiration behind my work. It tells the story of an eight year trip from Aboriginal Australia, through  the jungles of Papua New Guinea, overland through S.E. Asia, and across India on a motorcycle to the snowy ranges of the high Himalayas in Nepal.  It is not only the influence behind my art, but a psychology of life shaped by problems, solutions, and mental processes encountered through diverse and remote cultures that has transformed art to a technique of mental-spiritual revealation
