Death Valley: A Winter’s Journey
By Jackie Keller
The years of her life had been busy, rewarding, and sometimes overwhelmingly difficult. And over those years she dreamed the dream, as many do, that she could, just once, run away and escape it all. She dreamed of Death Valley National Park, of a winter's journey which promised beauty, slow time, and a quieted mind. So when her life stress hits a tipping point, this middle-aged academic--at the height of her career as a professor--put down her pen, packed her car, left behind the cramped life of the big city and moved to a small isolated community in the vast desert. There she made a liberating transformation into a desk clerk and a new life in which she found everything she had dreamed of, plus blessing and adventures she had never envisioned. Walk with the author through a season of travel, exploration, laughter, and renewal.
