Tom Slick Mystery Hunter! What if we could peer inside the mind of a 20th century “mystery hunter”? How did he learn to harness his intuition, to celebrate his curiosity, to dare to explore the unknown? What clues could we discern for our own personal journeys of discovery? Author Catherine Nixon Cooke takes us on an exciting adventure,in the company of her uncle, legendary explorer Tom Slick, whose tremendous wealth gave him the means to mount spectacular expeditions to the Himalayas and the Amazon, where conversations with the Dalai Lama, Indian mystics, and South American shamans offered many different lenses through which to see the world we think we know. Slick created five scientific research foundations, developed new species of cattle and grasses, discovered major oil fields, loved several beautiful women, searched for the “Abominable Snowman”, wrote two books on world peace,and produced several inventions that changed the world…all before he died in 1962 at 46 years old. Rare historic photos, personal interviews with family and friends,and Slick’s personal correspondence discovered in a shed by Cooke, create a portrait of a remarkable man who was sparked by the same “life puzzles” that catapult each of us on our own quest to understand the mysteries we all encounter.
