shortDescription

Set in Malibu and Mexico in the late 1970s, the book captures the earthy surf culture of Southern California; the boy's conflicted feelings for his magnetic father; and the exhilarating tests of skill in the surf and snow that prepared young Norman to become a fearless surfer and ski champion-which ultimately saved his life.

In February 1979, just as he was reaping the rewards of his training, a chartered Cessna carrying Norman, his father, his father's girlfriend, and the pilot, crashed into the San Gabriel Mountains in Southern California and was suspended at eight thousand feet, engulfed in a blizzard. Norman's father, his coach and hero, was dead, and the 11-year old Ollestad had to descend the mountain alone and grief-stricken, through snow and ice, without any gear. This is his remarkable story, in his own words.
