Daniel Levey was an outdoors and hiking enthusiast who fell to an untimely death while on the Konahuanui trail on Oahu, Hawaii. His nineteen years, while short in span, were filled with energy and curiosity. Daniel was fascinated by both the insights on life that could be expressed in words, and the sights viewed from atop mountain ridges that words could not describe. Daniel’s Views: Inspirations of a Young Hiker is the celebration of a short life well spent in friendships and in learning, exploring, seeking new perspectives and gaining spirituality. Compiled by his family, this volume contains Daniel’s favorite quotations (some quoted exactly, some modified by Daniel) and pictures taken during the summer of 2003, including photographs developed posthumously from Daniel’s last hike. A portion of the proceeds of the sale of this book will be donated to the Hawaii Trail and Mountain Club to help maintain hiking trails and encourage safe hiking.
