Before my driftwood fire I sit, And see with every waif I burn, Old dreams and fancies coloring it, And folly's unlaid ghosts return. John Greenleaf Whittier There is a great mountain in central Nepal called Annapurna, Goddess of the Harvests. This book recalls a walking tour in this lofty and exhilarating region. A time capsule from a world that has now largely passed, July 19: Today I Arrived in Kathmandu recounts the author's journey, interleaved with memories stirred by events along the trail, setting off trains of reminiscence and prompting the old dreams, the fancies, and the unlaid ghosts to take over.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Annapurna, Goddess of the Harvests, towers over the Annapurna Circuit. If you dream of trekking there, whether in person or from your armchair, you need this charming memoir: July 19: Today I arrived in Kathmandu. The book describes the breathtaking vistas, the villages, the residents, the lodges, the food, the sudden, sharp variations in weather and much, much more. It also brims with practical advice like how to avoid eating rice in the lodge kitchen served with the same spoon recently stored in the yak dung used to fuel to stove." - Neil MacFarquhar
