Never before told in its entirety – the story of the first pilgrimage of Western Bahá’ís to the Holy Land.

That journey of fifteen souls during the winter of 1898 1899 has come to be recognized as a pivotal event in the history of the Bahá í Faith; more than a pilgrimage a turning point that would have far-reaching implications many centuries into the future for millions of people.

Based on all available sources, including handwritten journals and letters never previously published, this story is not a mere recounting of history, it is a tale that inspires and instructs. Those privileged to take part in the first Western pilgrimage were, in the main, ordinary people with extraordinary spiritual insight.
