How do you go on living when you have done the unforgivable? Robert Lewis isn’t surprised to wake up in the drunk tank. He assumes that, as usual, he’ll sleep it off, then return to the routine of golf games, broker meetings, symphony dates and nightcaps that make up his life. Then his lawyer delivers the news: Robert is responsible for an accident that has killed a young mother and orphaned her young son, John.
Spanning three generations, Raising John tells the story of John’s bittersweet childhood, the history of the mother he never knew, and of Robert’s collapse and redemption.
Jennifer Lesher is an author, blogger, mountain biker, travel junkie and armchair philosopher.

When American sociologist and wellness expert Tanya Pergola first visited Tanzania and Maasailand, she became startlingly aware that she was in a place and with people who could teach her something profound. She sensed that lodged within the colorful and beautiful rituals and ceremonies of the indigenous Maasai people were gems of wisdom that could be harvested and shared as antidotes for our increasingly complex, stressful, and often enigmatic modern lives.
Dr. Pergola undertook a ten-year apprenticeship with Maasai traditional healers, led by her guide Lekoko Ole Sululu, in exchange for implementing sustainable development projects in Tanzania. InTime is Cows she shares the mind-body-spirit medicine of the Maasai, the proud pastoral people of East Africa.
In a voice that is at once crystal clear and spiritually alive - one that thousands around the world have already come to know in her talks and classes on wellness, yoga, and nature healing - her insight, inspiration, and empathy are present on every page as she shares her own knowledge and the wisdom of the Maasai compassionately and wholly.
Enriched with photographs, stories and suggested practice tips, Time is Cows is a handbook to help you simplify your life as you uncover its profound meaning.
About the author:
Born in the United States, Tanya holds a PhD in Sociology and Social Psychology. She is a Chopra Certified Vedic Master and has apprenticed with traditional Maasai healers in East Africa for over ten years.
