Praise for An Outlaw Makes It Home:
"An Outlaw Makes It Home bares it all in this machine-gun like compilation of adventures. A serious, playing-for-keeps quest for spiritual wisdom and enlightenment with a startling turn in the heartwarming discovery after an eighteen year search. Jaxon-Bear does not spare himself or try to polish his flaws and mistakes: in that regard, he is a warrior. I consumed this book in huge gulps and would do it again. I urge others to read it." ~ Peter Coyote, actor, author, ordained Zen Buddhist priest
"Outlaw rocks!. . .brutally honest yet deeply loving. This takes great courage. Bravo!" ~ Ed and Deb Shapiro, authors, meditation teachers
"An Outlaw Makes It Home, can be seen as a coming of age story, a modern journey of self-discovery but it is a classic hero’s journey, an odyssey, a journey out and a return home. What a journey, and what a home! Eli takes us from a shattering moment in a Brooklyn childhood through radical and sometimes terrifying times in the 60’s, being literally outside the law, escape to Peru, lots of drugs and women, Japan, Morocco, India, learning to be a farmer of sorts back home in the US.... all the way to waking up and discovering what home truly is. His honesty about fear and failure are very moving, but what really shines forth from these pages is a fierce love and commitment to the truth. I absolutely loved An Outlaw Makes it Home!" ~ Nancy Baker, Professor of Philosophy Emerita, Sarah Lawrence College and Zen Roshi in NYC
