Sleeping in Caves: A Sixties Himalayan Memoir is the true story of a woman who dropped out of Berkeley in 1965 to travel to India and Nepal with her lover. Their time there becomes a seven year stay in which she expresses herself through painting, and learns the secrets, wonders, and sacred essence of a profoundly spiritual culture. A smattering of black-and-white photographs and essays illustrate the award-winning author's dazzling journey through a rich and rewarding culture, and a brief glossary will prove helpful to readers unfamiliar with Indian, Nepali, and Buddhist terms. A highly recommended window into quiet daily workings of another land as observered and experienced. by Marilyn Stablein.
