About the Book

Poet Bob Casey in his book The Wanderer: A Poetical Journey takes the reader on a journey of introspection and self-realization. Likewise, you travel with him to distant countries. Humor, romance, love, adventure, and poignant observations are woven throughout.

The book's key sections include Life, The Eternal, Beauty, and Love. The final section takes you on a poetic journey around the world. Even those who never plan to leave their easy chairs will enjoy his poems, comments, and recommendations about New Zealand, Australia, Bali, Singapore, and Frankfurt.

The Wanderer differs from many poetry books in that the poet provides relative supportive information regarding each poem. You will be challenged and moved to examine your core beliefs. Bob's writings delve into commonly shared topics including the observable and the unobservable, the simple and the complicated, and the physical and the spiritual.

As one reader proclaimed, "Bob's poetry is written for the common person. You feel better when you are finished. It's intelligent, yet soft and honest. Your comments that accompany are wonderful. They help us to understand and trust you. It is particularly interesting to me because your poems seem to be living, continuously offering New Hope to your reader."

About the Author

Bob Casey is a poet, writer, educator, speaker, and presenter. Most importantly, he is a devout Seeker. He sees life as a journey filled with innumerable lessons. Everyday experiences whether joyous, mundane, or tragic teach those lessons. His poetry reflects those sentiments.

He spent much of his working life in Ohio, first as an educator and a consultant and now a professional writer. The wanderlust has sunk deep roots into him. He has cycled, hiked, sailed, and traveled to many far off destinations. A favorite memory is the year spent on a teaching Fulbright in New Zealand. Bob sees travel fostering an appreciation of our oneness and our dynamic diversity that exist within this world. His many diverse interests, including yoga, Tai Chi, skiing, roller blading, photography, and wine collecting inspire him to consume life while savoring the moment. Again, all these facets deeply impact his writing.

He and his family reside in Fredericktown, Ohio.

While Bob has had numerous poems and articles published, this is his first book. He has already begun work on his second, The Journey of a Soul. For more about the author and his writings or to contact him, go to
