Aama in America: A Pilgrimage of the Heart Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Vishnu Maya, called Aama (Mother) by everyone in her tiny Nepalese village, befriended the author when he was a Peace Corps worker in 1974. In 1988, on a trip prescribed by village priests as a way for the 84-year-old woman to earn merit by making a difficult trip late in life, Aama came to visit him. This chronicle of what became a 25-state, coast-to-coast adventure offers a profound exploration of beliefs, values, and a rediscovery of the spiritual that lies beneath the surface of America. 20 illustrations.
