Afterword I guess. The dream of the story and the reality of finality combine to produce a peaceful mindset. At least one thing is done. It was never written for the mythical audience, it was more as something on my mind in need of telling.

What readers thought of the Annapurna Blues.
The author masterfully takes us on a journey through the rarefied air of the Himalayas, the spiritual heights of Eastern religion, and the psychological depths of the characters. I felt as though I was hiking with the city folks on a life-changing trip, confronting their physical limits and the challenges of getting along in a group. It was a pleasure getting to know them and the mountain. Some books are a fun read, some profoundly impact you, and this is one of those rare stories that accomplishes both.
