As I started my snowmobile for a late afternoon ride that fateful day back in 1974, little did I know that my parents and 11 year old brother were fighting for their lives in a high mountain pass at that very moment. The small Piper aircraft they had been flying home in had just slammed into a frozen lake during a deadly blizzard. The next 24 hours would become a struggle for survival and a race to rescue them against all odds. This story details the horror of that crash, but it's also about growing up in a simpler time in a small, northern town. This book is a celebration of love, respect, survival and community as well as a lesson in grace and courage in the face of great adversity. If you love aircraft and adventure this book is for you.**Disclaimer** I recognize that the other family member’s memories of events may be different than my own.
