This first-person account tells how author Amy Racina survived for four days and nights, both legs badly broken, in a remote valley in California’s Sierra Nevada mountains after a sixty-foot fall during a solo hiking trip. Battling pain, fear and exhaustion, she pulled herself along with her hands, and refused to give up even when her chances of salvation were remote. The book chronicles her miraculous rescue, and describes her dramatic airlift out of the canyon, swinging helplessly from two straps, dangling fearfully beneath a helicopter high above the ravine where she had lain.

The book recounts her struggles with multiple surgeries and extensive physical rehabilitation, as she fought to walk again despite her severe injuries. It also encompasses the deeper reflections that shaped the authors’ life after the fall, and concludes with her triumphant return to the wilderness.

It is an amazing tale of despair and courage and hope. It speaks of incredible strength and heartbreaking weakness as it details what one woman believed might be the last days of her life. It is a memory of the darkest of times—and an affirmation of miracles. It is a celebration of a life almost snatched away, of survival against the odds.
