Derek has considered himself 'spiritual but not religious' since his pre-teen years. He feels now that his life has been a constant practice mirroring Buddhist teachings. This book was wriiten in Mae Sot and Khampaeng Phet Thailand, as he taught English to Burmese refugee children. These extraordinary children taught him more about life than he taught them about English.
In Walking Buddha's Path, Derek's plan is simple: fly to Bangkok, meet his wife, sign the divorce papers,  and go back to America. Mao has a different plan; she wants revenge for the loss of face a divorce will cause her. She bribes police to take Derek away to prison for 20 years. The search is on as friends from America and his Thai neighborhood, and staff from the U.S. embassy, scour jails in and around Bangkok looking for the missing man. Derek takes this opportunity to affirm the Bodhisattva Vow and pursue enlightenment for all sentient beings, despite being held in solitary confinement. Can a concrete bunker trap Spirit? Derek hopes not.
"A fascinating, compelling, and sobering journey through a dark side of Thailand that tourists should hope they never see. Derek Joe Tennant has written more than a work of fiction: its gripping realism will leave you
wondering how much of this is a true story. I recommend it highly
." Charles Platt, author of The Silicon Man, former senior writer at Wired magazine
