New Book Combines Adventure, History and Art of Healing

I integrated my medical and charity work background into an exciting and revealing narrative.

The practice of medicine and the art of healing are always evolving and progressing, but what can modern medicine learn now from ancient medicine?

Set in the mysterious and inspirational Bhutan, “Taktsang” follows the gripping story of a doctor’s disappearance, unknown terrors and the secrets of a part of the world not known by many. The novel brings together the powers of ancient and modern medicine in a story of adventure and suspense.

Dr. Dennis Snyder uses his vast background educating and practicing medicine in both top universities and more than 120 charity trips across the globe as inspiration for his new novel. With more than 25 years in the field of medicine, his first-hand experiences in travel, healing and teaching combine for a unique and expert look at adventure, risk and personal connections.

“My inspiration for this novel stemmed from my own travels to the Taktsang Monastery and a desire that I had to share a story of the place that others couldn’t tell,” said Snyder. “That was when fiction met reality; I integrated the magic surrounding one of the holiest sites in the world and my medical and charity work background into an exciting and revealing narrative.”
