Finding himself at midlife, feeling hollow and a like fraud, Paul Hawker embarks on a journey into the wilderness. In the tradition of the vision quest, like a hero in a mythic tale, he leaves his family and community to spend 40 days and 40 nights on a New Zealand mountaintop knowing full well the solitude, deprivation, and dangers he will face from exposure to the elements. But like many mystics and sages before him, he chooses a path of physical and spiritual testing as way to break through the veneer of his life. Soul Quest: A Spiritual Odyssey through 40 Days and 40 Nights of Mountain Solitude is the ruthlessly honest account of Paul Hawker's attempt to open himself to the Source, to discern the voice of God in his life.
