Travel can take many forms with a vast array of destinations, but there's one trip everyone will eventually take. The Ultimate Journey offers a choice selection of true stories from major writers about the final adventure. Crossing all geographical and spiritual boundaries, these writers in the fields of travel and spirituality tell touching, and often surprising, stories of their brushes with death. In a different way, each writer learns an important lesson about life. One traveler tries to make sense of a mysterious rescue from certain death on a bridge in Afghanistan. Another watches a holy man in India bring a crushed fly back to life. A third encounters an old woman in a cemetery in Mexico who tells her more about herself than anyone could know. Contributors include Sogyal Rinpoche, Edward Abbey, Pico Iyer, Mary Morris, Barbara Kingsolver, among others.
