Whether you are a world-weary worker juggling the demands of a hectic life or a seeker of soul-satisfying experiences, this deceptively simple book is your key to refresh, renew, rethink and recharge.

Inspired by the challenges of backpacking through the Sierras, I discover metaphors for understanding the mundane and the magnificent, the difficult and the delightful, the ordinary and the extraordinary in our 24/7 world. Join this walk in the wilderness to discover fresh perspectives, practical practices and laugh-out-loud-joy in the process.

You'll find wisdom expressed in a beautiful, economical, easy-to-read-and-grasp fashion that helps your spirit soar and your mind expand. You'll discover mountains about being, doing, living, and working. Simple truths for trekking through life await in this mountain university.


Excerpt

Gifts From The Mountain, by Eileen McDargh, is a beautifully illustrated book filled with watercolor paintings and wisdom derived from nature to help the reader cope with the complexity of modern life. The author was inspired to write the book after a backpacking trip through the Sierras. While considering wild onions or mosquitoes, river crossings or thunderbolts, McDargh imparts lessons for understanding the mundane and the magnificent, the difficult and the delightful, the ordinary and the extraordinary. Gifts From The Mountain gives readers much to reflect upon, be grateful for and to challenge toward a deeper definition of success.



Professional Reviews

Joe Robinson
"The natural world has a knack for being able to cut all our complications and confusions down to size. And that's exactly what Eileen McDargh does with this lyrical book, showing us through observations on the backpacking trail that the path ahead is right in front of us--if we're really looking. She certainly is, finding lessons for use at home and work in the tenaciousness of a high-altitude flower, the unexpected whims of the elements, and the danger of false confidence on the downhill track. Books that shine the mirror of nature back on us often wind up stuck in the gates from triteness. Not this one. The writing is superb. I kept thinking, I wish I'd seen that on the trail. I wish I'd written that. If you love the outdoors, are a hiking fan, or just want to get some wise words from a pathfinder who can clarify decisions in work or life, check this little book out. It gets you off the bullet train and lets you see the forest AND the trees."

Joe Robinson, author of Work to Live and founder of ESCAPE Magazine


Sam Horn
“What a treasure! This is an eloquent, singular work that transcends words on a page to become an eloquent masterpiece. It not only embodies the heart and spirit of the author; it captures the heart, mind and spirit of the reader. I’m using this as a model for my clients to show how to craft a one-of-a-kind book.”
