Summary
Set amid the spontaneous, uninhibited surf culture of Malibu and Mexico in the late 1970s, this riveting memoir, written in crisp Hemingwayesque prose, recalls Ollestad's childhood and the magnetic man whose determination and love infuriated and inspired him--and ultimately saved his life
Summary
On February 19th, 1979, blinded by a blizzard, a small chartered plane crashed into the side of a massive mountain. Eleven-year-old Norman Ollestad, his father, his father's girlfriend, and the pilot were in the crash. After a nine-hour nightmare, only little Norman remained alive. Here, Norman Ollestad chronicles his harrowing experience and epic fight for survival
