Angela Locke travelled to Nepal in the early 90's while researching a book, and found herself on a journey of discovery which would change her life. Meeting a Tibetan monk in the supermarket before
she left, he told her that 'the book is not important, but the journey is important!' Finding herself going back again and again to Nepal, she became immersed in the life of the country, and experienced
a deep spiritual awakening. Her time in Nepal would lead to the founding of the charity Juniper Trust which now works in Education and Health with the poorest communities all over the world.
The Foreword is by Everest veteran Sir Chris Bonington CBE, one of the world`s leading mountaineers, who is Patron of Juniper Trust; 'This is a book about an inner journey, not an adventure in a conventional sense, but a journey of discovery nonetheless. No mountains were summitted, but there is real adventure, told against a background of the sublime beauty of the Himalayas and of the gentle people who inhabit the foothills of Nepal.'
'Everyone who goes to Nepal is changed by the experience. This is the story of Angela Locke`s journey and her inevitable transformation. The result was the wonderful work of the Juniper Trust.' Doug Scott CBE
