To cope, he turns to travel, wandering the United States and crossing paths with a suicidal shaman, a Cambodian alien hunter, and off-the-grid meth addicts. He weathers an Atlantic hurricane, endures the Black Rock Desert, and attempts summiting Longs Peak, the highest point in northern Colorado, convinced that by overcoming the mountain he can overcome loss. But just when you think Tyler has come to terms with the passing of more friends--to rare disease, accidental drowning, and self-destruction--you won't believe the final lesson death has in store for him. This is a book of goodbyes, of migration, of achieving restoration--a five-year journey founded upon coming-of-age heartache, the loss of innocence, and finding hope in our natural world.
