April 13, 2016
“The High Mountains of Portugal” tells the story of a young man, Tomás, who embarks on a journey to find a treasure indicated in an old journal he found.
Then the novel flashes to thirty-five years later as a pathologist follows Tomás’ journey.
Fifty years later, a Canadian senator continues the quest with his companion, a chimpanzee.
“The High Mountains of Portugal” is a story of time and journeys through Portugal and the human soul.
