A Himalayan Adventure Travel Memoir with a Humanitarian Twist
NEPAL ONE DAY AT A TIME
In her book Nepal One Day at a Time Patti Shales Lefkos tells the story of a senior woman whose life has come to an impasse. In an effort to establish independence within her marriage and face fears of aging brought on by the tragedies of loved ones, she sets off for the first time on her own. Accompanied by a young guide and porter she volunteers at a remote village school before beginning a month-long high altitude Himalayan trek. Framing the two adventures are physical and emotional challenges, her lessons in Nepali culture and her quest to gain a deeper understanding of the people she encounters. And, how along the way she discovers a higher purpose: building a school to give back to the country she has learned to love.
Both an inspirational travel memoir and a story of personal re-awakening, Nepal One Day At A Time speaks to all of us who at mid life are seeking to make a difference by seeking “the alternate path.”
