A parable-like work of fiction reminiscent of the work of Paulo Coelho, Journey to the Heart of the World was written while the author, John Lundin, was living among and learning from the indigenous tribes of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in northern Colombia. Its message, both humanitarian and environmental, asks us to take heed of the messages of Nature and to care for the Earth and Her people, while also finding our own true place in the world as individual human beings.
This book, which had a kickstarter in 2012, is having a book release week and is now accepting pre-orders. According to the Huffington Post, Journey to the Heart of the World is being initially released Wednesday, June 24th exclusively on Kindle, with print publication to follow later in 2015. A portion of all proceeds will go to preserve both the indigenous culture and the environment of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta.
