I love novels about self discovery; in fact, I just wrote one myself, but Into the Land of Snows, by Ellis Nelson, is awash with discoveries of every shape and size one's human mind could imagine. Yes, this is a "YA" novel, but to call it a cross-over, or even transcendent, would not be an exaggeration. I began "working with" young people when I still was one of them, and from church programs, to inner NYC drug rehab programs, to teenagers who simply walked into my garage office, introduced themselves, and pointed to my chess board while asking if I'd like to play, for 61 years they have just appeared in my life, uninvited, as if there were a neon sign over my head blinking "This guy will hear you." So when I tell you that the novel's protagonist is real, please understand that young men like Blake McCormack have eaten pizza at my house, educated me about Life, the Universe, and Everything, and taught me their favorite games.

Blake's home life is badly shaken by divorce, and like most intelligent young people, he feels resentful and ill-informed. Teenagers strike out relentlessly, attempting to convince themselves (and their parents) that their level of practical and cosmic understanding is adequate, and Blake is no exception, but what drew me to this young man was (despite his bitterness and his hormonally charged and emotionally turbulent adolescence) his refusal to shut down when confronted with new, and even unlikely, information. My daughter, a loving and open-hearted only child, grew up with a life-long string "big brothers" she nicknamed "lost boys.

When my boyfriend recommended the book to me, I didn't really know what to expect. I have had no experiece with mountain climbing, Tibetan and Buddhist philosophy what so ever, but this book opened up this new culture. I found this story very well balanced between the real world and the magical world. How the author was able to tie modern day mountain climbing with Tibetan magic was spetacular and I really liked the ending. I usually read books about troubled teens and society and so from the second i opened the book, I felt like I could relate to Blake. I feel like i would act in a similar way if I was put in that situation and the author does a great job at explaining the deepness of Tibetan culture. A great book overall :) :) :)

In Ellis Nelson's well-crafted story, we journey along with the main character into a land where wisdom and mysticism continue to thrive. The brilliance of Nelson's work is that she takes a contemporary problem (Blake, a teen-aged boy acts out when faced with divorce and a distant father) and places it smack dab in the middle of an exotic land, a land that offers ancient and powerful ways to transcend our modern day problems. As we witness Blake's rites of passage, we find ourselves changed as well. Well-written with engaging and believable characters, this story has it all: adventure, mystery, magic, and wisdom. A great read for youth and adults!

Format: Paperback
There's something inexplicably captivating about the Himalayas. And although most of us will never get to see this distant part of the world first hand, Into the Land of Snows provides a tantalising glimpse.

Forced to relocate to an unfamiliar, rural town when his parents split up, Blake McCormack strives to cope with a host of issues all too familiar to many teenagers. But when his mother catches him smoking marijuana, Blake's parents decide he should spend some time with his estranged father, who is currently working as a doctor in a far from familiar place... Everest Base Camp.

An avalanche soon after Blake's arrival, makes his father rethink the wisdom of having his son in such a wild and dangerous place. He decides to send Blake back to Kathmandu, in the care of a Sherpa named Ang.

Blake's trek down the mountain transports the reader to a semi-mystical landscape of mountains, valleys, secluded villages and isolated monasteries. But when he discovers an unexpected secret, Blake's journey takes on a spiritual dimension, which blurs the boundaries between the possible and impossible.

Ellis Nelson writes as one who knows of being in the land of snows, of being with the Himalayans, Sherpas, Monks, Lamas and hence the beginning of an amazing life changing experience by Blake McCormack, Ellis Nelson’s main character in this fascinating novel. I came upon this amazing story by chance and did not even read the book description. The title alone was compelling. The story begins with the angst of a young 17 year old boy, Blake, who is angry at his parents. Blake is forced by his physician father to accompany him to the Himalayans to help at the base camp at Mount Everest, but here the story takes a life changing turn for Blake and then the real story begins. Into the Land of Snows takes the reader into a world so different, so beautifully challenging in its vision of life that the reader is drawn-in completely. So strong is the vision presented in this book it may even change the being within you.
