Dear friends of Tim and Cindie Travis -,

Great News! Our third book is done and off to the printer for an advance print run.

Down The Road in Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam:
A Bicycle Tour Through War, Genocide and Forgiveness.

Advanced print runs are usually promotional copies for book reviewers and the media.  We have decided to print a limited number of additional books and make them available to our regular readers, friends and family.  We will personally receive, sign and ship (by bringing them to the post office on our bikes)  all of these prepublication orders.  If you want a personal message signed in the book please let us know when you order and we will include it. 

These orders will be taken until March 30, 2010 and shipped by April 15, 2010.  After this special sale, we fly to India and the new book will take several months to become available in retail stores.  Future web site orders will be handled by our fulfillment company in Tennessee.  These sales will include applicable taxes, shipping and handling fees, and the books will not be signed.

So, If you order now you avoid the waiting for the official retailers to get set up and the shipping and handling fees are on us.

Click below to buy our new book $19.95, and free shipping (USA addresses only)
