A Mountain In The Wind is an exploration into the spirit of a man who continues to touch deeply the lives of millions worldwide. John believed in the oneness of all life and he reached out to all through his music. It has been said that in listening to John Denver sing, a vibration is felt which reaches deep into the soul and heart of those who are open to the message—the message of peace on Earth, of caring and sharing with each other as a family of man.

John Denver is a candle that lights the way. His message to us is simple; you do what you can do. It can be as simple as picking up the litter you see as you walk along the street, or to see the beauty of a sunset and share it with your child. It doesn't have to be something big, yet if each of us does something every day to reach out to those around us, we are making a difference.There have been numerous print and television media stories about him since his death, yet none have delved so deeply into the spirit of John Denver. He was more than a singer and songwriter, John was a communicator. . . speaking for so many of us through not only his songs, but also in the way he lived his life. To understand the man, we must look at his life closely: Whom did he consider his mentors and teachers? What were his spiritual beliefs? What gave John the strength to continue in the face of his own personal adversities? What books did John read? A Mountain in The Wind calls to each of us, it is more than a biography of John Denver; it can also be a blueprint for transformation.
