A three day solitary trip into the mountains changed Niki Collins-Queen's life. She went backpacking expecting a recreational experience; instead she had a spiritual awakening.

Barnes &
New Leaf
Georgia Wilderness Society

Taking a leap of faith, Niki Collins-Queen gave up a successful career and the comforts of civilization for a year. Earth, the Forgotten Temple is the inspiring true story about a woman's spirit quest while she hitchhiked on sailboats in the Bahamas, backpacked alone in the mountains and canoed in the Everglades and on the Suwannee River.


"In the wild I have flashes of self-forgetfulness--holy moments that seem to purify my soul."

Professional Reviews

She Knows How to Tell a Story
“Niki Collins-Queen really knows how to tell a story. One’s interest does not flag. One has the feeling of an author holding nothing back.

—Forrest Altman, Author of Wilderness Adventures, Afoot and Afloat

Her Writing Has a Hemingway-esque Quality
"Niki Collins-Queen's writing has a distinctively Hemingway-esque quality to it as she depends heavily on dialogue alternating with brief, vivid descriptions to propel her story forward. I feel deeply honored to have experienced her book."

--Pamela Stanescu, Editor & Educator

Life is an Adventure, if You Only Know How to Live It.
“Earth, the Forgotten Temple is a brave book by a brave woman who has endured the dangers nature can offer as well as the joys it brings those who take the time to fully appreciate its wonder…But its essence is that of a quest—one person seeking the true spirit of nature and God.”

—From the Foreword by James Palmer, The Macon Telegraph

Reader Reviews for "Earth, the Forgotten Temple, A Spirit Quest"

Reviewed by Greg Bates 10/20/2014
Make sure to get your sunscreen, bug repellent and personal floatation device before reading Niki Collins-Queen’s book titled Earth, the Forgotten Temple: A Spirit Quest in the Wilderness because you will feel like you are right with her in the wilderness. Niki paints such a realistic picture with her words; there were times my heart beat faster as I read some of the challenges she faced. This book has given me a newfound vigor for the outdoors, as I hope to embark on my own spirit quest.
Reviewed by Michael Guy 3/22/2010
well i bookmarked this one, and it certainly is inexpensive enough at Amazon. Ever since in the early 90's I read Joshua Slocum's Sailing Alone Around the World and the 'Maiden Voyage' an account of the 17yrs old in the 80's who sailed the world alone, I've been hooked. But like you I'm not a sailor, just an ocean lover. It is aweful what we are doing to our oceans but maybe this writing will still inspire me to action at this late age of post 55! The price I've paid for composing music! And this sounds like it has a spiritual background and a message of respect to treat our "Temple Earth" more lightly...
I'll check it out in April.
Take care, michael guy
