The Peaks in Us


By Nikos Michalopoulos


Fellow traveller, there is no trail. The trail is blazed as you walk. That’s how it all started. That’s how everything starts all the time.

THE PEAKS IN US could be a novel or the narration of a personal experience. It could only be the narration of a real story. Yet, above all, it is a book of positive thinking and a booster with 18 stories, 18 allegories of faith and hope, placed right in those places where the trail is too narrow and you have to find the strength to blaze it.

Just as it happens in real life.

No matter how high a peak someone has reached, in the end they realise that the highest peak is always inside of them.
