Mountain Dialogues · By Frank Waters · Foreword by Thomas J. Lyon

“Mysticism is peculiar to the mountainbred,” Frank Waters once told an interviewer for Psychology Today.

Ranging over such diverse subjects as silence, spirits, time, change, and the sacred mountains of the world, Waters sounds again and again the radiant, mystic theme of man’s inherent wholeness and his oneness with the cosmos.
