About the Book and Author
From a childhood on an Iowa farm, Lori Erickson grew up to travel the world as a writer specializing in holy sites, journeys that led her on an ever-deepening spiritual quest. In Holy Rover, Lori weaves the irreverent and the devout into a personal narrative. Lori's trips have given her a chance to reflect on her Lutheran upbringing, her flirtation with Wicca, and her admiration for Tibetan Buddhism. A trip to the healing shrine of Lourdes is intertwined with the story of her son's serious illness as a baby, while a visit to Thoreau's Walden Pond blends with ruminations on being a writer. Lori is an Episcopal deacon and author of the Holy Rover blog at Patheos.
