(Book). "I was six or seven when I noticed the music in my head. It was there in the classroom, on the football pitch, at the dinner table, when I went to sleep and when I woke up. And it's continued ever since." As a teenager in Scotland, Mike Scott played in punk and garage bands, hitchhiked to see Bob Dylan play, and scammed his way into Patti Smith's inner circle during an eye-opening weekend in London. In 1983 he formed The Waterboys with an ever-rotating cast of collaborators including The Fellow Who Fiddles (Steve Wickham) and The Human Saxophone (Anthony Thistlethwaite) and soon found international success with the "big music" sound of songs like "Don't Bang the Drum" and "The Whole of the Moon". In 1986 Scott travelled to Ireland to spend a week with Wickham and ended up staying for six years. During that time he developed a deep interest in roots and folk music, resulting in The Waterboys' best-selling album, Fisherman's Blues . After scaling the heights of success and moving the band to New York, he followed another fascination and went to live in the Findhorn spiritual community in Northern Scotland. Adventures of a Waterboy is an evocative, eye-opening memoir by one of the great British songwriters of the past four decades. It is an honest and revealing work, by turns heartfelt and funny, that tells the story of a cocky Scot with a sound in his head and his lifelong efforts to reproduce that sound a story that runs from teenage fandom to international stardom, from Scotland to New York City and beyond.

In October 2002, Elliott Hester sold his car, abandoned his apartment, and took off alone on a trip around the world, during which he drifted to over fifty destinations. Elliott's tales about his travels range from the bizarre to the hilarious to the flat-out shocking. Travel with him as he: · Chases off transvestites in the South Pacific · Gets drunk on Estonian moonshine at the maker's eightieth birthday party · Impersonates Samuel L. Jackson at the 38th International Film Festival in the Czech Republic · Ponders the Finnish tradition of sprinting from steamy sauna to plunge into the frigid Baltic Sea—naked! · And much more. Only an around-the-world excursion could produce such outlandish, hair-raising, hysterical adventures. And only Elliott Hester could make such vivid observations and write such vibrant insights about life---and people---on the road.
The Adventures of a Tennessee Farm Boy, is a true story about a farm boy growing up on a farm in rural Middle Tennessee and making the journey from the farm to the courtroom, where he was active in trial and appellate practice of law for more than fifty-six years. The author honors people who have been a positive influence in his life and shares with reader true stories about his life on the farm and in the courtroom.
Foreword The author, while telling his life story takes you on a trip to the outer limits of the human spirit back to the earthly realities of man in the flesh. He tells the story of how an extraordinary spiritual epiphany that occurred on the battlefields of Vietnam over 40 years ago, enabled him to connect first spiritually with God Almighty, but then also in a human way with the faith and hope, of his ancestors whose story is one with his and offer a solution that he believes will benefit the whole of our society today. From the highs of his spiritual revelation the author then takes you on some of the lows of present day reality with the political divide and social issues that has been eating away the moral fabric of the country for generations. The author translates the broken English of his ancestors into plain English so that the reader can better follow their story.
