about

A sharp-shooting SWAT team, a Venezuelan producer of alcoholic love potions, and an audacious subway rat are among the cast of characters award-winning author Darrin DuFord encounters in Breakfast for Alligators: Quests, Showdowns, and Revelations in the Americas. Through such mediums as public transit, cuisine, urban wildlife, and music, DuFord (author of Is There a Hole in the Boat? Tales of Travel in Panama Without a Car, 2007 Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Awards silver medalist) has created a collection of insightful stories that expose the desires and realities shaping landscapes from Chile to Canada. From surviving a journey in a homemade submarine off the coast of Honduras to receiving a lesson in aging from the street art of Valparaiso, DuFord's lively, engaging narratives show how travel has the ability to illuminate cultures while unleashing their bottomless complexities.

"Succulent travel writing." Publishers Weekly

“An anthology of rollicking, sometimes baffling adventures (and plenty of misadventures)....A bunch of great stories.” Spud Hilton, The San Francisco Chronicle

 

“Breakfast for Alligators is an eye-opener for both the untraveled and the well-traveled alike because this is no shiny tourism guide, this is down-home firsthand experience, and all the more charming for it.” Glenn Dallas, San Francisco Book Review

 

“DuFord captures the best of travel writing—by turn informative and entertaining, often hilarious, sometimes moving... He takes us on one wild ride after another.” Tony Perrottet, author of Napoleon’s Privates: 2,500 Years of History Unzipped

 

“A series of magical, humorous travel stories....a joy to read.” Gregory Hubbs, Transitions Abroad
