James Michael Dorsey is an explorer, award winning author, photographer, and lecturer.     

He has traveled extensively in 45 countries, mostly far off the beaten path.  His main pursuit is visiting remote  tribal cultures in Asia and Africa.


His articles for  mainstream publication strive to educate and enlighten travelers about remote places they have never been while his literary endeavors are personal nanrratives about unique journeys.


He is a fellow of the Explorers Club,  a former director of the Adventurers Club, and a travel consultant to Brown&Hudson of London.  James is a throwback to a bygone era of exploration and his stories and photos take the reader along with him.
