A heartfelt memoir. Pat West Turner survived a near-fatal car accident as a high school senior that resulted in the amputation of her right leg. Pat has never let her disability define her. In this book, she has shared what she went through following the accident and the ways in which she continuously met life with a sense of adventure, personal courage, strength, and perseverance.

Turner, an avid snow skier before the accident returned to the ski slope with adaptive outriggers and went on to compete nationally and internationally. She later became a ski instructor and also a school teacher. Her missing leg never held her back.

She shares important lessons learned through adversity. At every crossroad, she focused on what she could do rather than what she was unable to do. Turner hopes this book will provide inspiration to others to face their own challenges with courage and resolve.
