Let's write as if nothing before has been written!
| || Steve Cavin grew up in a small town in southeast Michigan, about an hour north of Detroit. At the age of 17, he began camping out in the backyard, testing out his tent, sleeping bag, and stove. At 18, he left home with fifty-seven dollars, and began hitchhiking west around the world. Four years and 30,000 miles later he returned, with eleven dollars and a Chinese fiancée.
Mr. Cavin has worked many different jobs, crewing sailboats in California, picking fruit in Australia, teaching English in Hong Kong, fishing in the Israeli desert, and packing coffee in England. He now write books and poetry aboard his sailboat in the harbor at Eureka, California. He practices archery, runs meditation retreats in the mountains, and attends an open microphone in the local coffee shop, where he tells stories and reads his poetry.
