Letters home detail the life, travels, and studies of a young artist immersing herself in Eastern spiritual and artistic traditions during the late 60s and early 70s. Before the Internet, texting, and social media were ubiquituous, Stablein travels through India, Nepal, and Tibet on a journey from girlhood to adulthood and eventually motherhood.
