Lee in the Land of Laa
The Illustrations for this book will shortly be ready!
Inspired by a true event which happened in Laddakh in 2009.
Lee in the Land of Laa tells the story of how two young women became those rarest of travelers who lost their way and managed to survive in the highest mountains in the world. Having left their home for a trip to a foreign country, like many other young people, to explore the world and come back with a new perspective on life, they couldn’t expect they would have become part of a miracle. What saved their lives was an uncommon shelter which they had ridiculed until shortly before finding themselves wandering alone in the freezing wind of the high peaks. It’s a story about transformation and openness towards other traditions and spiritual cultures, which may look very different from the one of our upbringing. Beyond different manners and paraphernalia lies the shared quest for Love and human warmth sought by all the spiritual traditions of the world. We all come to understand this sooner or later during the course of our lives, and this tale tells of the time when Lee came to understand it, while she was traveling the beautiful land of Laa.
