Once again the author of The Andean Codex, Dr. J. E. Williams has written a true story of shamanism and the sacred way of the Q'ero family into which he has been initiated as a member. This new book however takes us deeper into the labyrinth of the highest mountains and into the secret heartland of the gods themselves. As he is learning the beautiful, inexorable value system that goes back to the Incas, Dr. Williams discovers that nothing is given to those who take it for granted. Beyond the physical plane, he is taught by his mentor, Sebastian, to be prepared to meet the spirit deity of that most sacred of all Andean mountains, Ausungate. But Sebastian cannot promise deliverance. He is there only as a guide not a guarantor. The final chapters may give you the shivers as the author ascends to the roof of the world. Does he meet the spirit presence of Ausungate? Does he triumph on the trail of fire and ice? Your own journey awaits as you begin to read this remarkable true adventure.
