"Quite an amazing book - really a must read
for conscientious travelers not only to Asia but other parts of the world that have been in any way isolated from Western influence." -American Buddhist Perspective
"Our Nepal experiences have been through a locally-owned company in Kathmandu staffed by people from Basa, near Everest. Jeff has spent time in Basa and taken on this village as his personal project. A school and electricity generation were the first two projects Jeff undertook and this is about his personal growth experience.

"This ... is an experience in spiritual enlightenment as well as Himalayan adventure ... It is a rare book indeed that can provide this kind of spiritual and psychological depth as well as breathtaking high adventure. It will be of interest to mountaineering explorers, anthropologists, spiritual seekers and anyone looking for an exciting true adventure story. It is a wonderful addition to eco travel literature as well as a book for spiritual journeyers, soul travelers, and philanthropy travelers." examiner.com/review/bringing-progress-to-paradise-1 by Sylvia Andrews for Examiner.com
From the Author
Bringing Progress to Paradise
is more than a travel memoir. It is a how-to and a how-not-to manual for Himalayan trekking. More significantly to me, it introduces readers to the strongest and kindest people I know. God willing, it will inspire others to action, to live adventurously, but not just for self, but to transmit love and compassion across mountains, oceans, and cultures.
