A Million Steps: Discovering the Lebanon Mountain Trail
Hardcover: 288 pages
Publisher: Interlink Books (1 April 2011)
A thrilling, yet intimate, view of the 440 km trail that runs through the remote and majestic Lebanese mountains
Hana El-Hibri and her fellow hikers were the first to walk the length of Lebanon from north to south, and her up-close account of the month-long journey is accompanied by Norbert Schiller’s superb photos, capturing the region’s diverse wildlife, its stunning scenery and the colorful characters that live there.
On their journey, they encountered torrential rivers, thunderous storms, and blazing sunshine. They crossed deep gorges, massive snowfields, and idyllic meadows. They came across goats, wild animals, and dozens of colorful local characters who treated them to the hospitality, cuisine, and folklore of the Lebanese mountains.
A Million Steps gives us snapshots of a Lebanon that is rarely seen and of an adventure of discovery, beauty and companionship to be treasured by all who value Lebanon’s rich rural heritage. A fabulous gift book!
