Two Breaths, One Step: Hiking Across the Himalayas (Paperback)
"I realized I was alone and the trail had completely disappeared. I had no idea where it was, nor did I know where I had ventured off from it. I was lost, and I had backpacked enough to know this was not a good sign, not a good sign at all." In 1984, Sylvia Verange set off on a 500 mile journey across the Himalayas of Nepal. Hiking through the breathtaking scenery, remote mountain villages, and treacherous, freezing conditions, Verange's story lays out both a historical snapshot of the region, as well as an epic travelogue of a once-in-a-lifetime journey. Part Elizabeth Gilbert, part Paul Theroux, Two Breaths, One Step follows one woman's hike through the Himalayas as she endures nature and comes to know herself.
