Product description

Review

"Sharing a treasure trove of compelling and beautifully observed stories, Antonson draws us along on a remarkable, yet deeply personal odyssey through near-mythic lands. This is one of those rare books, full of emotion and insight, the work of a true traveler.”
—Dina Bennett, author of Peking to Paris

"This tasty, spicy feast of a book could have gone beyond its 350 pages. Once picked up, it is hard to put down."
Library Journal

"It's not just about the journey, or standard travel writing. It's about storytelling, and Rick takes us on a magical, almost mystical adventure to destinations once only shrouded in mythology."
—Peter Greenburg, travel editor, CBS News

"Antonson shows an indefatiguable and intrepid spirit in this swift account of his ascent of Mount Ararat and his travels through some of the most dangerous territory in the Middle East, including Iraq and Iran . . . A book filled with the enthusiasm of discover, the delight of accomplishment, and the relief of return."
Kirkus Reviews

"Packed with historical facts and anecdotes, enhanced by excellent maps and photos, this is a fascinating travel adventure to one of the most ancient areas of the world . . . A reader's feast that is not to be missed."
—John A. Cherrington, author of Walking to Canada

"An educational, amusing, and inspiring tale told by an experience and worldly traveler . . . a fabulous weaving of adventure and research."
—Shannon Stowell, president of Adventure Travel Trade Association

"Rick Antonson radiates the curiosity and vigor of an explorer and an intrepid traveler. His writing captures the essence of the spirit of adventure and trust in fellow human beings."
—Mandip Singh Soin, mountaineer and explorer, founder, Ibex Expeditions India

"From the beginning, Antonson establishes himself as a perceptive and evocative travel writer. The various viewpoints he encounters both on the climb and in subsequent visits to the region are respectfully and sensitively presented, with some historical background to assist the reader. History is not always pretty and hikes don’t always go according to plan. But both are combined here in an engaging and entertaining book."
Booklist
"Impressively well written, exceptionally 'reader friendly' in organization and presentation, notably informed and informative, "Full Moon over Noah's Ark" is a consistently compelling read from cover to cover."—Midwest Book Review
