Part of my love for this book comes out of my love for hiking, especially in rugged terrain, and a recent discovery of my love for Nepal. Matthiessen describes in intricate detail the brutality of long distance hiking in the high desert mountains of the Himalayas, and its effect on the human body and psyche. But this is also a story about a man seeking something true, something wise, something by which to live his life, and never quite finding it, which is a welcome respite in a world in which knowing the answer is often valued more than living out a question.
