A Journey Through Life as Experienced in the Mountains

by Alan V. Goldman


Book Details

“...This collection of poems perfectly encapsulates Goldman’s obvious deep awe and reverence of the truly feels present with Mr. Goldman, as he climbs both the physical and emotional mountains in front of him...
...The moral questions and dilemmas Goldman grapples with within his journey are applicable to both climbers and non-climbers alike, making this collection a worthwhile read to all.”
