Mountains, though they might seem to be merely big bits of rock decorated with snow and trees, are in fact “great teachers”. Nipping up summits the world over, Goodman finally finds one that talks. Yes: Guadaloupe Peak, Texas, is a speaking mountain. It says to him: “All you need is love.” (Why can’t mountains like the Beatles, too?) Later on, Goodman begins “to suspect, and also to fear, that I was to be a prophet of a new world order”. Indeed. Either an important spiritual document, or an admonitory example of the effects of oxygen deprivation. – The Guardian. Decide for yourself. The book stems from years spent travelling to the sacred mountains of the world.
