Stablein drops out of Berkeley at age 19 and travels through India and Nepal from 1966 to 1972. Her life on the road is revealed in a series of letters to her parents. Sweet, intimate, and richly descriptive, this book reminds us of what a spiritual quest looked like before the digital age.
"This wondrous book is more than a travelogue detailing Marilyn Stablein's years in India and Nepal: we also encounter the astonishing independence of a young woman at the forefront of the spiritual revolution of the 1960s." -- George Kalamaras, author of The Theory and Function of Mangoes
