Journey to the Mountaintop: On Living and Meaning
Two friends, an artist and a writer, are jolted into awareness and reflection--one by a near-death experience and the other by the sudden passing of friends. They embark on a shared journey of discovery in America's first wilderness, the Catskill mountains, where they talk, write, paint, and explore everything from the wisdom of Native Americans to the words of scientists and naturalists. Journey to the Mountaintop offers a thoughtful and poetic consideration of our relationship to nature and what it means to live life to the fullest in the time we are here.
