Blue Collar Nomad explores gritty urban areas, eclectic towns, and isolated geographical landscapes while presenting meaningful dialogues between the author and those citizens who have been misplaced or forgotten by mainstream society.  This book stirs it readers to get out there and be with the land and its people, beyond the stifling shadows of institutions and technology, in order to deeply feel the world outside and within for themselves.  To understand that there is no insurance policy or broadband signal expansive enough to cover our wild genius and its inherent spark to kindle this time.

 

"Blue Collar Nomad is a serene collection of meditations on self, time, and place in the 21st century American landscape. Evoking the spiritual quests of Jon Krakauer, Jack Kerouac, and Henry David Thoreau, this collection of poems, narratives, and essays affirms one’s faith in the power of language to root and restore a world of one. For anyone searching for the Church of the Blue Sky, reading Jake Kaida is a must."
