|About the Author|
This is the story of a sacred journey begun when Socrates, an old gas station attendant/philosopher, leaves author Millman restless with the idea of conformity. Millman's journey is interrupted for eight years ("the lost years',' he calls them), when he leaves the path of the sacred warrior for university politics, family responsibilities, and professional aspirations. Then, a faculty travel grant motivates him to forsake his miserable life of conformity and resume the sacred journey begun so long ago.
He finds a nameless woman in Hawaii, spoken of by Socrates, and she agrees to serve as his shaman. Millman meets other unforgettable characters while facing shocking revelations and mortal challenges as he ascends the warrior's mountain to wisdom and peace. Recommended for libraries with large philosophy or religion collections.
