While travelling in Laos on a winding mountain road, the bus that award-winning journalist Alison Wright was riding is collided with a logging truck. As she waited fourteen hours for proper medical care - in excruciating pain, certain she was moments from death - Alison drew upon years of meditation practice and concentrated on every breath as if it would be her last. Despite countless surgeries and a gruelling recovery, Alison set herself the goal of achieving a new dream: to one day climb Mount Kilimanjaro - and she reached the summit on her fortieth birthday. Gasping for air once again, she stood at the highest point in Africa, determined to never again take a single breath for granted. Perfect readers who love spiritual authors travelling abroad, such as Greg Mortenson ("Three Cups of Tea") and Elizabeth Gilbert ("Eat, Pray, Love"), this memoir is an amazingly inspirational tale of how a life-changing accident transformed one woman's faith.
