Hornell native Mike Green publishes first book Wandermust

Mike Green has always been a traveling man.

As a youth growing up in Hornell, his mother would sometimes drop him off at James Street Park for a few hours of fun. The playgrounds and ball fields couldn’t contain him for long, though, and Green would often end up exploring the city.

“I’d be up to Kmart and people would say to me, ‘Does your mother know where you are?’ Green recalled. “When I was in Hornell as a young man, I was always drawn to travel books. Being from a small town in Western New York, an old railroad town, some people might think you can’t go places, but I knew that I was going to travel”

Green has stepped on all seven continents and visited 63 countries since leaving Hornell at the age of 20. His journey recently culminated in his first book, “Wandermust: A Hero’s Journey to Seven Truths.” The book is an “adventure leadership memoir” that captures the lessons Green imparts to clients as a performance coach who helps individuals maximize their potential. Many clients are corporate leaders across industries like aerospace, cyber security, energy and government.
