Lost Trails, like its author Kevin Davis, has traveled the globe from the 2004 London Book Fair in March to the 2004 BookExpoAmerica in Chicago this June.

The book reflects a world view that comes from traveling to Asia, Europe, South America, and throughout the United States, as well as reading a variety of religious texts (the Bhagavad-gïtã, the Bible, the Chuang-tzu, the I Ching, the Qur’ân, and the Te-Tao Ching).

“Lost Trails is a poetry book that insightfully gives words to the feelings that many of us struggle to express, yet deeply experience,” Davis said.

Davis carefully distills a variety of life topics into well-chosen prose that will cause the reader to reflect on emotions that lie buried under the daily tasks of life. Lost Trails will appeal to nonpoetry readers because each poem is short, clearly written and yet is still artistically valid. The book contains 100 poems that are listed alphabetically rather than by topic, which makes for a more interesting read.

After June 2, an audio (mp3) version of the book will be available at www.musikd.com. A preview of excerpts from Lost Trails can be found online at www.Xlibris.com/LostTrails.html. Copies of Lost Trails are available at Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, and Borders.com. Davis will be at BookExpoAmerica (booth no. SP4680) June 4-6 at Chicago’s McCormick Place.

Davis is a resident of Rockford and is host to the Pascere Benefit Concert held at the Mendelssohn Club of Rockford every February. Davis holds the position of first chair trumpet with the Kishwaukee Symphony Orchestra. More information about Davis can be found at www.musikd.com. E-mail Davis at kevin@musikd.com.
