Publisher's Summary

This story is not about avoiding death. It's about living life.

Immerse yourself in the amazing story of Edie Littlefield Sundby, who, after being told she had only three months to live, survived 79 rounds of chemotherapy and radical liver and lung surgeries and then walked 800 miles along the California Mission Trail, averaging 14 miles a day and stopping at life-giving missions to revive her body and her soul.

When she finished she yearned to walk the mission trail from its start - in Mexico. But no one had traversed that trail in 250 years.

As you will learn in this audiobook, Edie doesn't care about what some deem impossible. It is that spirit that has allowed her to live despite the odds.

With fading strength and only one lung, she walked another 800 miles through the rugged mountains and deserts of Baja, Mexico, to the California border. In a walk of triumph, of harrowing adventure, and of spiritual enlightenment, she carried her mortality in every step and, in the process, opened up a profound communion with God and his creation and the true meaning of life.

And all of this with a terminal cancer that was chasing her every step of the way. It still is, and she continues to walk with it every day.

For me, walking is a transcendent physical, emotional, and spiritual experience, like dancing. "If I can move, I am not sick." That is my alternate reality. And I believe with all my will in that reality. So when cancer strikes again and again, I walk to stay alive.

Life is the greatest adventure there is. Why stop our adventuring because someone says the end might be near?

For those who crave a spirit of adventure, who ache like Edie to know what our bodies and spirits are truly cable of, this audiobook is a must-listen. A true testament to faith, courage, and the power of hope.

    "Narrator ruins it..."

    I was looking fwd to this book. The story is compelling. But goodness this narrator just kills it. Overacts it and takes away from the narrative. Wish she'd tone it down or Audible offer more than one narrator of texts. Author herself would have been special too.
