A visit to the ancient stone formations of the British countryside provides a series of autobiographical, inspirational reflections upon such topics as faith, holiness, and death

Blackwell North Amer
The work of M. Scott Peck has had a profound effect on the lives of millions of readers, and his book The Road Less Traveled has become both a part of the popular culture and a spiritual and inspirational guidebook for a generation.
Now, Dr. Peck has written his most personal book: one that tells more about himself than he ever has before, while at the same time helps readers see truths about themselves, their own lives, and the greater community around them.
On the surface, this book is the story of a three-week trip through the countryside of Wales, England, and Scotland that Dr. Peck took with his wife Lily - looking for the ancient megalithic stones that became an obsession for them. But the search for stones is a search for meaning and mystery, and ultimately an unveiling of the pilgrimage of life itself.
Each day of the three-week trip he discusses a related realm of human experience - parenthood, holiness, romance, art, to name a few - and we travel with him on an adventure of the spirit, striving to understand the journey of life in all of its complexities and secrets. We are moved by the intensity of the journey, as Dr. Peck frankly faces his own fears and shortcomings, and through the power of his insight we are challenged to do the same.
Illustrated with exquisite line art by Dr. Peck's son, Christopher, In Search of Stones is a beautiful book of spirituality and quest, faith and mystery, and the most intimate book to come from one of our most distinguished thinkers.
