What Mountains Teach is an inspiring story of a man’s journey back to himself. It is a spellbinding story of a man facing a midlife crisis… A personal odyssey to the mountains… that will resonate with many readers. I just turned forty and some of the questions answered in this memorable story are those I have been grappling with for a while now. The author shows a great understanding of midlife psychology, weaving relevant themes such as family, love, solitude, and personal fulfillment into the story. Michael Herrick composes passages that are beautiful and insightful, and readers will be entertained by the enlightening dialogues as they follow the protagonist’s story. What Mountains Teach is a great story with strong spiritual overtones, well-crafted in prose that is accessible, and in a voice that is arresting and alluring.
I couldn’t put it down.
