Belden Lane explores the impulse that has drawn seekers into the wilderness for centuries and offers eloquent testimony to the healing power of mountain silence and desert indifference. Interweaving a memoir of his mother’s long struggle with Alzheimer’s and cancer, meditations on his own wilderness experience, and illuminating commentary on the Christian via negativa - a mystical tradition that seeks God in the silence behind language - Lane rejects the easy affirmations of pop spirituality for the harsher more profound truths that wilderness can teach us.
