Dag Walker's New Book Out Soon

I've been working to polish up my latest book and it is near completion today.
It looks like Ivonne and I have been proofreading and editing and tinkering with my book, Iquitos, Peru: Almost Close, since some time early in Oct. We want to get this one right, and with Ivonne's incredible ability to spot problems and come up with excellent solutions I think we have a book well worth your time and money.
Of course, the oddities in the writing are mine and at my insistence, Ivonne giving in only after rigorous debate on fine points that I overrode. There are numerous instances of what will be seen as bad writing and terrible grammar. I do know better, but sometimes it's more important to make a stylistic point that a grammatical one. In any case, the mistakes, intentional or not, are mine alone.
The book should be ready for order within a day or so. I'll leave a link here when it is ready for the world at large.
Meanwhile, I look forward to writing more at this blog about Iquitos, about life in general, and of course about my own life and times.

Thanks for you patience and continued support.
