On Juniper Mountain

A Journey in the Himalayas

Leaving her isolated Lake District valley, writer Angela Locke finds herself on a life-changing journey in the Himalayas....


CATEGORIZED IN

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. Sir Chris Bonington CBE, one of the worlds leading mountaineers, Patron of Juniper Trust, Everest veteran Angela travelled from her isolated English valley in the Lake District to Nepal just before the Maoist unrest to research a different book, and found herself on a journey of discovery which would change her life. From a chance meeting with a Tibetan monk in the supermarket before she left, she learnt that the book is not important, but the journey is important. And so she found herself returning to Nepal again and again, becoming immersed in the life of the country, and experiencing a deep spiritual awakening. Her experiences led to the founding of the charity Juniper Trust which supports education and health initiatives in the poorest communities all over the world.

REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

I read this book with interest and something more. Angela Locke helps the reader to enter into her adventure from their armchair, and I felt I now understand so much more about the people of Nepal though there is obviously far more to learn. ~ Mary Bartholomew, The Goodbookstall

For every journey there has to be a first step. When, in 1992, Angela Locke travelled to Nepal for the first time, she had never been anywhere in the Developing World. This first journey would be a life-changing experience which would culminate in the founding of the charity Juniper Trust, of which I am the Patron, which now works to provide basic facilities for the poorest and most disadvantaged communities across the world. 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. ~ Sir Chris Bonington CBE, one of the world's leading mountaineers, Patron of Juniper Trust, Everest veteran

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, Himalayan climber and founder of Community Action Nepal.

With disarming honesty, Angela Locke has captured the rollercoaster of emotions that is a first visit to Nepal...the fears and fascination; for her the beginning of a journey of enlightenment, and a new mission. ~ Stephen Goodwin, Editor:The Alpine Journal, journalist and climber
