HJ Books stands for Hero's Journey Books. We learned about the term Hero's Journey from Christopher Vogler, who used it to synthesize the work of famed mythologist Joseph Campbell. The Hero's Journey is a classic storytelling structure in which a hero sets out on an outward or inward adventure and must overcome several obstacles and setbacks in order to achieve an important objective. The books available for purchase on our Blurb account share stories of heroes' journeys written by students at High Tech High Chula Vista. We hope you (purchase and) enjoy our books, as we put all of our hearts, souls and efforts into these works.
