Quest: Risk, Adventure and the Search for Meaning (Paperback)
A Deep Search for the Meaning of Life
John Graham shipped out on a freighter when he was 16, hitchhiked through the Algerian Revolution at 19, and was on the team that made the first ascent of Denali's North Wall at 20-a climb so dangerous it's never been repeated. He hitchhiked around the world at 22, reporting in the Boston Globe on a every war he came across. A US Foreign Service Officer for 15 years, he was in the middle of the 1969 revolution in Libya and the war in Vietnam. At the United Nations, he risked his career, crossing his own government to support peace initiatives in South Africa and Cuba.
Much more than an adventure yarn, Quest takes you on the author's fascinating journey from a thrill-seeker to a man in search of real meaning in his life. This brutally honest story moves readers to look at the meaning of their own lives and, for many of them, to make life-altering course corrections.
Quest is a book to read and pass on, especially to the young people in your life whose quests may be just beginning.
