Beschreibung:

Explores the impulse that has drawn seekers into the wilderness for centuries and offers testimony to the healing power of mountain silence and desert indifference. This book shows that the very indifference of the wilderness can release us from the demands of the endlessly anxious ego.
Interweaving a memoir of his mother's long struggle with Alzheimer's and cancer, meditations on his own wilderness experience, and illuminating commentary on the Christian "via negativa"--a mystical tradition that seeks God in the silence beyond language--Lane rejects the easy affirmations of pop spirituality for the the harsher, more profound truths can wilderness can teach.
