- Beginning as far back as the
renaissance - quite likely long before that&emdash;and certainly,
many, many times since the nineteenth century - people from
western countries have been traveling to India in search of their
souls! The lost sense of the elemental is something the
recapturing of which is evidently sufficient reason to take on
India's perils, frustra-tions and comfort deprivations. This
account is no exception.
- Like her previous "pilgrimage"
book, Rushing To Eva, Mary Leue's account of her 1988 India
trip is reported virtually unchanged from what she wrote from day
to day as she experienced it. Like her previous book, this account
also offers a prize to the reader, both in the richness of the
author's experience and in the light it sheds on our western ways.
- The narrative flows very readily
from the author's inner commentary to the outer observations she
makes upon the Indian cultures
