JOURNEY IN LEATHER by Thomas Smith has been honored as a Finalist for the 2013 International Book Awards! JOURNEY IN LEATHER is a collection of provocative essays. It is a personal journey into the leather tribe. This book takes an unorthodox look at the leather community, traditions, history and leadership. Inside perspective and practical experience are delivered based on personal experience. This book is valuable as a historical document, as a glimpse at leather history, and as insight into its associated values and attitudes. “My journey in leather is absolutely a path of discovery about myself and the others involved. A person’s leather journey is rich in feelings and motivations, rich in shades and variations. A person’s leather journey is experienced and practiced in different ways. Based on my leather experience, your actions, words, honor and generosity to others will define you far more than a title or awards ever can.” – Thomas Smith
