From the Publisher:

Dear Reader,
It’s 1 A.M. and tears are rolling down my cheeks as I read the final draft of this book as it goes to press. I’ve worked in publishing for twenty years, and I’ve read hundreds, perhaps thousands, of manuscripts, by some of the most influential and inspiring authors of our time. But I can’t remember a time when a book affected me as deeply as Angels in the Wilderness has done.
The story in these pages is intense. You will laugh, you will cry, but from the first page, this book will hold you, and not let you go. As a story of human courage and persistence, it is unparalleled. As a parable that challenges us to find the best within ourselves, it is remarkable. As an honest and beautifully written story, it is searing. And as a reminder that in the most desperate of circumstances, grace, humor, wisdom, and the gentle touch of God’s spirit are available, it is profound.
Let the magic of these words enter into your soul. Read this book, tell your friends about it, and help Amy and me make sure that it reaches the hearts and hands of many.
Thanks,
Dawson Church- Publisher

Book Description Author's Publishing Cooperative, United States, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This book is a first-person account of a disaster on a solo hiking trip. Author Amy Racina was hiking in a remote part of King's Canyon National Park in California's Sierra mountains when she lost the trail. With no warning, she suddenly fell sixty feet, breaking both legs on the rocks below. She survived for four days and nights, battling pain, fear and exhaustion, pulling herself along with her hands and refusing to give up. She was miraculously saved, her calls heard by a man who was partially deaf. It describes her dramatic rescue as she was airlifted out, swinging helplessly from two straps, dangling fearfully beneath a helicopter high above the ravine where she had fallen.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. Seller Inventory # NLF9780971088894
