Stepping into Fountains is a young woman’s odyssey to South America, Appalachia, Mexico, Berkeley and beyond to learn about life outside of sheltered, small-town America in the 1970s. It recounts in colorful detail an unforgettable experience working with impoverished children from Colombia’s slums; a summer working in a children’s home in Appalachia; a road trip in a ‘53 Chevy from Kansas to California; selling cookies on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley; traveling north from Panama City to the United States by local bus; and three months traveling alone throughout Mexico. She wasn’t in Kansas anymore. This odyssey begins in the summer of 1972 and ends in the fall of 1976.
