But as two centuries passed, the valley remained little known. Those who came, and stayed, were drawn into its embrace as to a mothers breast, were comforted, made welcome, finding peace in which to live out their lives. The valley was special to all who knew it. The Valley was nestled between rugged peaks, divided by a magnificent river.
