Summary
A 25-year-old backcountry wanderer, a man happiest exploring wild places with his dog, Dan Bigley woke up one midsummer morning to a day full of promise. Before it was over, after a stellar day of salmon fishing along Alaska's Kenai and Russian rivers, a grizzly came tearing around a corner in the trail. Dan barely had time for "bear charging" to register before it had him on the ground. His life was shattered by the mauling that nearly killed him, that left him blind and disfigured. This is a story of courage, tenacious will, and the power of love to lead the way out of darkness
