Based on her own experiences, Dorothy Mierow's absorbing and dramatic novel chronicles the adventures of Cindy Adams, a bright but confused college graduate who in the 1960s was among the first American Peace Corps Volunteers to be sent to Nepal, a small and remote Himalayan kingdom which, up to then, was isolated from the rest of the world. Aside from the Peace Corps, Nepal was also becoming the new found "Shangri-la" destination for the Asia-overland, vagabond hippie set. In those heady days, hash was legal, love was cheap and life was high. Struggling to make sense of an alien but exotic culture which she helps to bring from the middle ages into the 20th century, Cindy questions her own values and finds her way towards a fulfilling purpose in life.
