From School Library Journal:
YA-- In 1984, two Americans set out to trek through western Nepal. One was injured in the early part of the route and returned to Kathmandu, while Antin went on with only a translator guide and three porters. Since their clearances were not in order, they skirted large towns and sometimes walked at night. They encountered friendly and hostile natives, blizzards, patrols, and at one point, they nearly lost their lives. Through all this, Antin kept his journal, which provides readers with remarkable insights into his feelings and emotions. His enlightenment and spiritual renewal were a surprise to him, but he emerged with an appreciation of a world stripped of its pretenses, where man must co-exist with nature. The plentiful photographs, both black-and-white and color, give glimpses of the terrain and the people. Antin's lively writing style keeps readers turning the pages.
