Written by a Maine man living in Mexico, this collection of short stories, essays, plays, and poems elicits a kaleidoscope of emotions.
These tales are funny, horrible, and uplifting by turns. Author Robert James Shand provides a full disclosure of his personal life, from his experiences as a child growing up in Brewer, Maine, to his thoughts and feelings while living in Mexico.
Through his stories, he describes gaining a deeper appreciation for the changing of the seasons in Maine, reflects on celebrating Veterans Day in Mexico, and laughs about the time no one believed that he saw a naked woman running down the street
On a more serious note, Shand recalls his experiences serving in Vietnam as well as the traumatic stress he coped with upon returning home. Throughout Musings of a Maine Man Abroad, he maintains and supports his core beliefs about the world, God, and his personal relationship with Jesus.
