He also serves as Executive Director of Ethical Traveler (www.ethicaltraveler.org), a global alliance dedicated to human rights, environmental protection and the ambassadorial potential of world travel. Jeff’s new book, Snake Lake — set in Kathmandu during the “People Power” revolution of 1990 — was released in November 2010 by Counterpoint Press.
