    "Into the Land of Snows" is a penetrating novel (suita

    "Into the Land of Snows" is a penetrating novel (suitable for young and old alike) that impressively delves into the adventures of a young man, Blake, as he explores the enigmatic and mystifyingly pure domain of the Himalayan region.  Nelson’s book faithfully reflects the true, pristine, raw, deeply reverent -- in terms of seeking the truly sacred -- atmosphere of the region.  Her book reveals how splendidly innocent, caring, down-to-earth, and “immersed in exploring reality” the region’s people tend to be.  Indeed, the Sherpa people of that region have long been known for their physical longevity, kind disposition, and deep religiosity.  

    Nelson takes us along with the young man… having us share in his baffling and mystical adventures (in a way that enables us to feel as if we are there ourselves, in the midst of the majestic , magnificent universal life forces).  The difficult steps that he takes, concerning adjusting to the steep inclines and ultra-thin atmosphere, concomitantly mesh with his difficult and conflicting thoughts (concerning his relationship with his family, his culture, and his complicated world).  Nelson effectively puts us in his shoes, and we (too) share in the seemingly insurmountable mental difficulties and mysterious (unfathomable) terrains, which Blake must courageously face.  

    I deeply enjoyed how Nelson reveals how the Himalayas is an unspoiled, innocent region; it contains something that -- unfortunately and regrettably -- our so-called modern, materialistic culture has lost.  Largely (which may coincide with their lofty mountains) the beautiful Sherpa people base their lives mostly around touching and encountering the sacred, the divine.  Our so-called modern culture, conversely, is more enmeshed with material success, flaunting possessions, sticking to details, and “having a good time”.  What we fail to realize is that mere pursuit involving “having a good time” is largely a childish waste of time.  Not perceiving the “truly lofty” is like crudely remaining in the low valley forever.  Change, if you can.  Read Into the Land of Snows.  Climb to new levels; the way to grow is by going up!

    A page turner!

    Ellis Nelson has written a brilliant page turner in her novel Into the Land of Snows. She has captured the essence of the Nepal/Tibet region, its people, and its traditions. Centered around a teenage boy and elder Sherpa who share a journey through this unforgiving land, the story tells the unfolding of forgiveness by a resentful teenager, and the steadfastness of the Sherpa's Buddhist traditions that defy time, place and and circumstance. Nelson brings us into the intimacy of monasteries, the mysteries of spiritual knowledge, with a writing style that not only engages the reader, but makes one want to keep turning the pages throughout the night. Ellis Nelson does not disappoint as many of this genre do. On the contrary, her ending is mature, insightful, and true. And well worth staying up all night to get to! Highly recommended.
