This travel diary is Cathal Ó Searcaigh’s long-awaited first major prose work. The book describes the charismatic Donegal poet’s travels through Nepal, and uncovers his growing love affair with the country and its people.
The book begins in the bustling capital of Kathmandu, and the author’s poetic descriptions bring to life this colourful city of contrasts and many of his experiences there will bring a smile to the reader’s lips.
The Guru of the Hills, as Cathal is known, then leaves the capital and begins a spiritual and physical journey through the mountains of Nepal and the characters that he meets along the way light up the pages of the book.
The book is beautifully produced, and includes stunning photos, as well as poems by the author.
