    Into the heart of the Himalayas
    Into the heart of the Himalayas
    Alone Across the Highest Mountains on Earth
    When Jono Lineen's brother died in tragic circumstances, he gave up a comfortable life, moved to the Himalayas and over eight years immersed himself in the cultures of the world's highest mountains. The experience culminates in his book Into the Heart of the Himalayas, a fascinating memoir that traces his solo trekking odyssey from Pakistan to Nepal across thousands of kilometres of mountain terrain. No - one has ever before attempted to walk the length of the Western Himalayas alone, but Jono's intentions were more psychological than physical. It was about integrating the Himalayan culture he had grown to love, assimilating the wisdom of the place and coming to terms with his loss. Jono's openness with everyone he meets on the trail - from Pakistani military officers to Tibetan lamas and naked Hindu Saddhus - lies at the heart of one of the most complete portraits of the Himalayas ever written. Jono Lineen - a lone, disarming man - crosses borders, religions, castes, languages and philosophical boundaries to find the way to embrace his future.
