This book contains the 200-year history of Orthodox monasticism in Alaska. Into this virginal forestland was deposited the Philokalic wisdom brought from ancient Valaam Monastery in Russia. Also included are poetical inspirations and photographs, which evoke in the reader a yearning to enter into intimate communion with God and His creation. Beholding the azure realm where heaven and earth meet in Alaska's "Northern Thebaid," one will seek to find that same realm in one's own heart. "For behold, the Kingdom of God is within you."
