Uncle Jack Among the English was written in 1984 chronicling the author's sabbatical experience in London and then continuing on his Around-the-World Pan Am ticket back to Eugene, Oregon, where he taught at the University of Oregon. It was a humorous look at a time spent alone with his then new Osborne so-called portable computer (27 pounds) and Epson printer. This was before many people traveled with such technology, but it allowed him to record his travels and then self-publish a book afterward.
