One Remarkable Friendship

Life lessons from the Himalayas
Limitless Sky is the remarkable true story of David's initiation in the Himalayas - the beginning of an extraordinary adventure that proved more challenging and, ultimately, life-affirming than anything he could have imagined.
Limitless Sky shares the wisdom and insights learnt from this transformational training in the Himalayas. These include practical guidance on how to live a full and fearless life, how to find happiness and how to live in ways that nurture both ourselves and others. As David reveals, the life lessons he learned in the jungled foothills of the Eastern Himalayas could benefit us all today.
"A stunning book, which I found enthralling … a journey so vividly expressed and so seductive that the reader takes it all in easily and hungrily. Above all, I love the bravery, curiosity and honesty that streams from this immense adventure … A really remarkable and compelling book, full of wisdom, humour and beauty."
