About the Book

Under the Tree Book

The Story

Ray Carte accidentally plummets off an icy mountain road and crashes into a tree. Experiencing the near-death state, he finds himself lost in a strange world in which he encounters a guide. She reminds him of Alice from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland who turns out to be much more than a fairy tale character: with her help he maintains hope that he can return to those he loves.

Readers are transported into the post mortem state in this novel of the near death experience. Under the Tree, in the tradition of The Tibetan Book of the Dead, explores death, dying and the afterlife, from the point of view of characters entangled in a life-and-death crisis.

Writing with the colors of Buddhist philosophy, Stone presents Eastern concepts of the afterlife in an engaging drama that adds clarity to the discussion of life after death.

This one belongs on your bookshelf next to Siddhartha.

The Buddha achieved enlightenment under the Bodhi tree. Ray Carte almost loses his life under the tree, but finds his way back, learning lessons that change his life.

Don’t leave this life without reading Under the Tree.

“I loved this book. I have read a lot of spiritual books and this was a spiritual book with a fairy tale spin. It really inspired hope and reminded me of the divine. Buy this book!”
