"They say I'm crazy. That's OK. I'm just curious and determined."

--From Scott Hubbartt's diary, November 2, 2011

How Could He Possibly Make It Out Alive?

It was supposed to be a simple day hike. Scott Hubbartt was a military veteran with years of survival training. Everyone who knew him considered him an expert adventurer.

But Scott's trek into the treacherous backcountry canyons of the Peruvian Andes turned into a desperate fight to survive after he became hopelessly lost. As his eight-hour hike lengthened into days, Scott faced dehydration, hunger, and exhaustion. And that's when his true journey began.

Chronicling the failures and miracles of a remarkable physical and spiritual passage, A Short Walk to the Edge of Life is the gripping, true story of a man who had to come to the end of himself before he could find his way home.

From the Author
This is not just a book about survival in was admitably a challenging and life threatening environment. It is the story of a hard fought journey of personal discovery and a re-evaluation of life's priorities. Everyone will find something here to relate to and perhaps do some reflection on their own walk in life.
On another note...I love Peru and ALL travel, and I encourage everyone to trust God and take a walk!
