Seattle Book Review features Points North

Rosi Hollinbeck from Seattle Book Review reviews Points North:

Points North by MIkel B. Classen

Points North by MIkel B. Classen

“…Who needs cities when one can find an abundance of parks, museums, ghost towns, wilderness areas, hiking trails, rivers, lighthouses, and more. This wonderful book has forty destinations, each with a write-up of two to five pages that includes beautiful full-color photographs and a detailed accounting of what the place has to offer. When appropriate, there is also history woven in. The writing is lively and shows the passion author Mikel B. Classen has for his subject. He has been to all these places and describes them in great detail. The photos were taken by Classen, and are a great addition to the book. Every page will entice readers to hit the road and head to the north country to uncover these delightful destinations for themselves, but even if one is merely an armchair traveler, this book will be a great addition to their library. It is so well-written and designed, that it will satisfy every type of adventurer.”

Product Details

Jessica needs a fix.

Vacillating between a desire to get high and a yearning for a substance-free life, she finds herself alternating between cocaine and yoga, dependence and freedom. Will she be able to let go of her self-abuse and find sobriety one day, and one breath, at a time? An addict who once disappeared into crack dens, she now seeks solace at yoga studios. As Jessica attempts to create a path to recovery “on the mat” and in the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous, she grapples with one unanswerable question: “Is recovery worth it?” Yoga Cocaine traces one addict's journey from the unknown of addiction to the unknown of recovery.

"A raw, compelling, artfully crafted novel, Yoga Cocaine takes us on a deep dive into the shadowy world of addiction. This novel powerfully illuminates what's available to us when we commit ourselves to the redemptive path of recovery. Even if you've never struggled with addiction, you will be shaken, moved and inspired."
--Kezia Renée Lechner, author of Close to the Bone: An Uncommon Love Story

"Yoga Cocaine is a heartwrenching story of a woman failing at what seems like an impossible mission: getting sober. Its intense, matter-of-fact voice draws us into Jessica's world, walking us through her journey in a way that helps us to see into the mind of an addict and understand how long and hard a journey it really is."
--Selina J. Eckert, author of This Cursed Flame

"Jessica's experiences could put any fraternity guy to shame, yet you feel for her and root for her, despite her nonexistent moral compass. Through yoga, and some serious diversions, she undergoes a powerful, poignant transformation. Yoga Cocaine is an emotional roller coaster ride of despair and recovery. It's a must read for anyone who's ever dealt with addiction or loves yoga."
--Heidi Doheny Jay, author of Confessions of 400 Men

“For anyone who has known addiction and sobriety - or wondered about it - Yoga Cocaine is a powerful, painful, hopeful, inspiring and addicting story that you won't be able to put down. Pick it up now and dive in."
--Lisa Kohn, author of To the Moon And Back: A Childhood Under the Influence
