A new novel and the story of love, death and trancendance.
Full website about Annapurna Blues.
This novel is the story of a twenty-three day trek in Nepal in 1978. It is a classic story of perseverance and transcendence of the members and staff.
The trek around Annapurna is one of the iconic hikes in the world, from the hot and humid lowlands though terraced fields and villages reachable only on foot. It culminates by crossing the formidable Thorong La at 17,700’ before entering the high desert of the upper Kali Gandaki River flowing south from the Tibetan Plateau.
This novel, in contrast to my first one, has taken more than a year to write and is still getting its finishing touches. Three editors have had their say, and it has been rewritten a number of times. The story is an important one, full of exotica from a remote corner of the world with hopefully a message for every reader.vI will take orders that will be ship beginning in the first week of November 2020. Resellers, send an email to me if you would like to stock this book.
