“Gypsy the Gem Dealer” is a testament to man’s enduring quest to find connection in an unfamiliar, sometimes alienating world. It will appeal to adventure-seekers, armchair travelers and anyone who loves a good story based on real-life events.

Self-confessed globetrotter Ivor Blimsworth has released a new book where he charts the life of Gypsy who embarks on a life-changing adventure around the world. Suffused with the grit and glamour of the Beat Generation, “Gypsy the Gem Dealer” (published by Xlibris) is part biographical adventure, part spiritual story immersed in a heady swirl of strange cultures, recreational drugs and breathtaking places.

The first book in a series of five, “Gypsy the Gem Dealer” introduces readers to the eponymous main character, an anarchist and hardcore traveler, and takes them alongside his journey through India, Japan, Australia, the Philippines and more. Gypsy’s encounters and experiences also offer a rare insider’s glimpse into life in different regions of the world and even certain parts of underworld culture. Blimsworth tells it rough and ready, an account of the life of real hardcore travelers of that time, it talks about religions from the inside, drug culture, counterculture, spirituality and extraordinary adventures.

“I hope this book gives readers inspiration to go traveling, to do things that they want to do in life, to explore their own spirituality, to find their own freedom and to dare to be different,” the author says.

Told in the same “Gypsy the Gem Dealer” is a testament to man’s enduring quest to find connection in an unfamiliar, sometimes alienating world. It will appeal to adventure-seekers, armchair travelers and anyone who loves a good story based on real-life events.
