"Earl Goldmann's poignant and moving memoir is the story of a young boy growing up in Tillamook, Oregon, and the terrible injury inflicted by the man who should have been his mentor. As he struggled to understand and to forgive, an unexpected gift from a faraway relative gave him an outlet for channeling his anger into a positive life. While playing basketball at Oregon State University, Goldmann is severely injured in a horrific car wreck and is forced to return to his hometown to recover. With his athletic scholarships gone, can he realize the life he always dreamed about?"--Back cover.More/less
