Editorial reviews

". . . the only real and worthwhile journeys are the inner ones" and this is a sort of quasi-spiritual travelogue which never raises its voice above a whisper and begins in Hong Kong, where Rowena Farre spent her childhood. She took an apartment there for a year but spent a good part of it on an almost uninhabited island, walking up a mountain to extend the "inner frontiers of reality." From there she went to Mauritius, Ceylon, a village in India, Calcutta, and Delhi before spending the winter in the sacred city of Hardwar and then going up alone in the Himalayas to further experience the "timeless. . . of the spirit." Along with her conversations with yogis, lamas, pilgrims and assorted ascetics, there is a little past history including that of her progenitors. The title alone will indicate that the tone is yesteryear's - estranged from the modern world she has attempted to escape. (Kirkus Reviews)
