The book was awarded the Bronze prize for Travel Books.
The award was specifically for the publication of this book as an audiobook, beyond it being a printed book and an ebook. This is a first time for SATW giving the book award for an audiobook. The audiobook was produced by Becky Parker Geist of Pro Audio Voices.
The Judges wrote that this book is “a spiritual quest for meaning in a confusing, compelling, and ultimately contradictory world, seen through the lens of the 21st century. It tells us more about the traveler than about the space through which he wanders.”
