“I have had the pleasure of working and traveling with Gary Young in his quest for searching, attaining knowledge, verifying facts, discovering the traditional trade routes, and verifying the types and cultural uses of frankincense and myrrh in Oman, Yemen, Somalia, and the Middle East at large. Gary’s motivation and cravings for knowledge are unsurpassed, as he will go to the ends of the earth to achieve this, regardless of the political risks, date and time of day, hardships in getting to the destination, daunting terrain of the landscape, and sleepless nights in the desert.
“Gary and I both have a passion for frankincense and have searched for, identified, and distilled all the different species that we could lay our hands on—all for the benefit of humankind.
“The One Gift is a well-written, romantic journey of a man wanting the world to know about these ancient treasures and most important about one man’s quest for the truth! It is vividly packed with historical illuminations and unforgettable characters—a truly remarkable novel. It is the true journey of a man’s quest to unearth the past secrets to good health and longevity and shines light on the many diverse uses of frankincense.
“He who searches shall find The One Gift. It is a must read for everyone.”
