About All the Creatures that Breathe
From Harvard Yard to the Andes, a story of discovery, love, and loss.
In 1985, three Harvard archaeology graduate students travel to Peru for a backpacking trip to seek adventure, culture, and historic sites. While exploring undiscovered Incan ruins on the remote, eastern frontier of the old empire, the friends witness an unspeakable crime. Their enchanting trip becomes a primal fight for survival.
The three friends must come to terms with their experiences, and each student’s recovery and healing process becomes intensely personal and continues for decades.
This is a story of exploration, endurance, and the cruelty of lost love.
In his new novel, Dee Dauphinee, author of When You Find My Body: The Disappearance of Geraldine Largay on the Appalachian Trail and Highlanders Without Kilts, takes readers on a true adventure, immersing them in a backpacking expedition into remote parts of the Andes. Dauphinee guides the readers from the preparation and logistics of the excursion through its long, dirty, sweaty, reality — warts and all.
