On January 20, 2003, at 10:45 a.m., a massive avalanche released from Tumbledown Mountain in the Selkirk Range of British Columbia. Tonnes of snow carried 13 members of two guided backcountry skiing groups down the 37-degree incline of a run called La Traviata and buried them. After a frantic hour of digging by remaining group members, an unthinkable outcome became reality. Seven people were dead. The tragedy made international news, splashing photos of the seven dead Canadian and US skiers on television screens and the pages of newspapers. The official analysis did not specifically note guide error as a contributing factor in the accident. This interpretation has been insufficient for some of the victims' families, the public and some members of the guiding community. Why did the guiding team seemingly ignore a particularly troublesome snowpack? Why were two groups travelling so close together? Were the guides adhering to best practices for terrain selection and snow stability evaluation? What motivated them to go there? Buried is the assistant guide's story. It renders an answerable truth about what happened by delving deep into the human factors that played into putting people in harm's way. The story begins buried metres deep in snow, and through care-filled reflection emerges slowly like spring after a long winter, nurturing a hopeful, courageous dialogue for all who make journeys through the mountains of their life. The story illustrates the peace that comes from accountability and the growth that results from understanding.

Buried by the Church is a controversial book that seeks to encourage readers to rethink religion, to question the Church and the Bible and to use their new-found knowledge to find a different spirituality. Written in a simple, easy-to-understand manner Buried by the Church aims to demystify some of the more challenging concepts within Christianity, while demonstrating that true spirituality is within us all. Neal Sutton’s work charts 12,500 years of spiritual truth from the real pyramid builders to Moses, the Mayans, Freemasons, Pharaohs, Jesus, Mary Magdalene and John the Baptist. It details the battle for hearts and minds that has played out across thousands of years within the Church, and looks at the truth behind the Bible stories. Buried by the Church is based on several years of research on religion, spirituality and history and goes further than comparable books such as Holy Blood, Holy Grail, offering more detail – including, for the first time – the true identity of the Mona Lisa, the reason the pyramids were really built and what Jesus went on to do after he ‘died’ on the cross.The DaVinci Code lit the fuse – Buried by the Church is the explosion
