Publisher's Summary

The Motorcycle & The Molecule is a comical insight into intentional communities, international travel, and alternative styles of living. Mayan rulers, janky motorcycles, and mischievous beavers all make appearances in a tale inspired by a solo research expedition through Central America. From a troubled community deep in the wilderness of Oregon to the Mayan ruins at Tikal, and from the beaches of Nicaragua to the jungles of Costa Rica, follow Dougie Lux along roads less traveled as he encounters an array of unforgettable characters, unconventional communities and uncomfortable ceremonies, all while leaving a trail of benevolent mischief sprinkled in his path. 

More than just a travel novel, The Motorcycle & The Molecule delves deep into the human experience and our desire for connection, reminding us that we are all beautifully flawed, masterpieces in progress. Join the adventure at www.DougieLux.com

What an adventure

From the first page to the last, the author does a wonderful job of weaving back and forth between the highs and lows that come along with traveling, mental illness and life in general. He seems adept at using “the molecule” as a tool and a medicine to dig deeper than one might otherwise. There’s an extra fine line one must walk with great care when dealing with mental illness and dabbling in psychedelics and he walks it well. The whole book was quite inspirational and I often thought of how fun it would be to travel with a guy like Douggie. Reading this a year into the pandemic, I especially appreciated the epilogue. We’ve got a long way to go and this book left me with some optimism.
