' I Crow River ' Book release







What’s a book? A narrative? A story? Possibly it’s just an excuse to share a dream, a vision and a tool to fire up a revolution in the hidden passages of our mind. Perhaps it is a prayer that we do evolve into a species that actually cares about each other more then we desire to accumulate ‘things’.
     At last, I Crow River is out, ready to meet and greet you with a roar.
     And sure, Nobi the Crow is in your face: to challenge, to probe, to ask questions, to make you wonder and perhaps wander.
     It could be a stand-alone book since it really does not fit within any genre. 
     Both Fiction and non Fiction; an Ecological/ Spiritual/ Physical/ Metaphysical thriller, and of course, a Love story as well.
     I Crow River is available now in digital format at all main distributors such as Amazon Kindle, I bookstore, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Baker & Taylor and many more. It will take a couple more months before it’s available on paper. And anyway, let’s try and save some trees. So if you have an e-reader, go for the digital version.
You can also follow I crow River on Facebook and check for sample chapters, comments and the evolution of the vision

     If you like the book, if you learned something from it, if it supported or inspired you – let others know of your experience.
I Crow River is more than a book, it’s a movement of people who care and share, who dare to dream and have the courage to walk the journey.

Preface

Some years ago I was sitting on the banks of the river Ganga in a place called Rishikesh in northern India.
     It’s a place that has always been a source of inspiration for   me; you might call it a sacred site or a power spot.
     I had this idea to write a book based on some of my past work with sustainability and organics. The title was going to be Organic Farming for Fools.
     After a week of sitting in front of my laptop, I couldn’t get past page one. It just felt stuck, even though I already had   much of the material ready.
     Then one night I just gave up.
     I walked outside and sat by the river, enjoying the calming effect of flowing water and the light of an almost full moon.
Suddenly I heard the river talk—no joking, I heard her voice. Now anyone that knows me would vouch that I am quite a grounded person. Though that night the river did talk to me, and what she said was: “Start writing, don’t worry about the book you were planning to write, write the book I am going to give you.”
     I went back to my room and commenced typing and it just flowed, one page after the other. I never knew what the story would be, what the next sentence would be, though I trusted it was coming—the river did say it would.
     In a few weeks the whole story was there, though it took a couple more years to polish the rough edges.
     So this was the birth of I CROW RIVER, and I promise to you, it wasn’t me, it was the river.

The Book
Into the night flies an elder crow speaking the voice of the earth mother. What takes place next is an epic journey of the soul as humanity and nature face one another in the form of the man narrating the story and our bird tribe brother.
     Page by page we witness the unfolding of an extraordinary saga - from fear to love, from me to we, from a self-centered world to a universe, which includes all living beings.
This book will ignite a spark of change in your heart.
