Front Cover
Simon & Schuster, 1997 - Religion - 235 pages
1 Review
Based on a pioneering eight-year study, this is a fascinating and ultimately reassuring look at the belief systems that surround death and dying in cultures around the world -- revealing the startling similarities found in traditional descriptions of the journey we embark on after death.

The first cross-cultural investigation of how humanity copes with the reality of death, this comforting guide supplies an important new understanding of the after-death in much the same way the work of Elisabeth Kubler-Ross does for the dying process.

"It will stretch your mind, enlarge your hope, and fill the sails of your spirit with a fair wind for the longest journey into the beyond". -- Sam Keen, author of Fire in the Belly
