Join journalist and author Harley Rustad and intrepid traveller Kate Kristiansen for a conversation on the fascinating life – and presumed death – of Justin Alexander Shelter. Lost in the Valley of Death: A Story of Obsession and Danger in the Himalayas investigates the enticing and perilous draw India has had on Westerners for centuries, and questions whether Justin met his demise through hubris or disappeared experiencing true enlightenment on his own quest.
