Finding the Source

One Man’s Quest for Healing in West Africa

Somewhere in Africa, the blacksmith’s widow is rumored to still be alive. And her dark magic is Dave’s last hope of ending a twenty-year curse. If only he can find her.

A touching and profound real-life adventure story that spans continents—and worlds.

Dave Kobrenski

I’m an author, artist, musician, and flute maker with a deep love for culture, healing, and world travel.

I make unique art, music, and books that take the reader off the beaten path, to glimpse a sliver of the human experience they might not ordinarily see.

It is my hope that my work will inspire people to look deeper into the importance of both biological and cultural diversity, and to see that a more beautiful, healthful world is possible.
