Anyone facing uncertainty, transition or illness will be inspired by this engaging true story of misfortune, recovery and the power of perseverance. Michael's  memoir, Two Mountains, reminds us of our innate strength, courage and capacity to overcome adversity.

Four months after summiting Mount Kilimanjaro—the tallest mountain in Africa—Michael’s physique mysteriously transforms from vibrant athlete to wheelchair-bound patient. Newly wed, his wife Terri faces a future of full-time care giving.

In this touching tale of peaks, valleys—and an amazing ascent to walk again—Michael reflects candidly on the humbling, humorous and heartful moments of his life.
