The Hills of Adonis

(1968)
A non fiction book by

 
 
For four months and 500 miles, Colin Thubron walked the mountains of Lebanon, following tracks and rivers. His journey was not only a survey of a remarkable country but a quest for the gods and divinities who held the secrets of death and rebirth in the land's ancient cults.

He visited almost every place of cultural importance and lived with the people along his way, recording a country of outstanding natural scenery, rich with a unique medley of races and religions.

The Hills of Adonis is both a travel book and a personal journal, for the quest is the search for meaning, a reflection on faith and reason and a poem on the joy and complexity of living.
