Million Steps - Discovering the Lebanon Mountain Trail
>Order the Book
1st, 2009, Lebanese mother of three, Hana El-Hibri, and five other
hikers, set out on a month-long trek to walk the length of Lebanon.
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 dogs
and dozens of colorful local characters who treated them to the
hospitality, cuisine and folklore of Lebanese mountains.
Steps is the diary she kept of her 29 days walking the newly established
Lebanon Mountain Trail. It is a story about one woman's journey
of fulfillment, and of her companions, all of whom were passionate
about conservation, heritage and Lebanon's endangered natural
beauty. Hana's heartfelt words and Nobert Schillers's stunning
images give us snapshots of a Lebanon that is rarely seen.
