Inhaltsangabe: Trail Mix: Stories of Youth Overcoming Adversity delivers a delicious combination of hope and visual relief. This book is a collection of 14 inspirational stories, told through the words of young adults, ages 13 to 21, about facing some of life’s most difficult challenges – life-threatening illness, loss of a parent, gang involvement, sexual abuse, brain injury, and learning disability – and discovering renewed hope and new attitudes through experiences based in the wilderness. Each story is gift wrapped in full-color breathtaking wilderness photography by John Fielder and hand-painted artwork by Padgett McFeely. The book also is an excellent resource with contact information of organizations with wilderness programs to help young people. Olympic Gold Medalist Picabo Street shares her thoughts in the book’s Foreword about dealing with a brain injury two weeks before her medal-winning race in Nagano, Japan. She also supports the insights of the storyteller’s.
In an age of all too common school shootings, disjointed communication through e-mail and instant messaging, and mesmerizing computer games, this book is a breath of fresh air. It’s a return to what’s real: nature, simplicity, support, and genuine kindness.

Vom Autor: Colorado author Danielle Corriveau found that their stories spoke to her life’s issues and believes that they will speak to others as well.
“Although my challenges are different from those faced by the young adults in the book, when I read their stories, I take on their enthusiasm and strength. And I tap into that feeling when I am facing my own fears, feeling overwhelmed, saddened, or frustrated by a situation in my life. I have been told by others who have read the book that they too, were uplifted by the stories and found a sense of calm through the serenity shown through the photography,” said Corriveau.
