About the Story

You are Steve Goodwin. You're a regular guy, young, successful, dynamic.

But a nagging question gnaws at your soul, undermines your joy at your success and interferes with the very business of living. For this is not an answer you can find in the pages of any book. What you yearn to know is the meaning of life itself!

But then you learned about a man, a guru of great wisdom, endowed with the miraculous 'supreme realization', who could teach you the secrets of the universe! A six-hundred-year-old hermit, living at the top of a mountain in a kingdom most right-thinking people assume to be a myth. A man known as the Dada Lama!

And this is why we find you now, after many months of journeying, of fruitless searching, beaten and battered by the uncaring elements, in this mysterious valley hidden deep within the mountains...

...the mystical valley of Shangri-La!


Yak Shaving for Kicks and Giggles! is a humorous quest for spiritual enlightenment involving a yak, a disposable razor, a jar of pickled eggs and the abominable snowman.
