Is there a still place on earth that is left untouched by technology and man's interference? One that's pure, idyllic as it was during the ancient times?
National Book Award winner Bob Shacochis decides to find out in "Between Heaven and Hell", and travels to the ancient kingdom of Mustang in Nepal. Where grand landscapes, violent geography and suspenseful travels await him and his wife, Cat. And in a relationship between man and nature, one thing's for sure: nature wins every time. The travels are eye-opening, yet dangerous. But Shacochi's travel memoir isn't just about the wonderful sights, but also about the human condition being tested along the way. The feelings documented are raw and real, just like the landscapes that lay out before him. And you might just want to finish the book in private, where you won't have to put your own emotions on display as well.
