Publisher's Summary

The wilderness can be unforgiving and dangerous, yet fill our souls with awe and wonder. It can overwhelm us with beauty and stun us with fear, lift our spirits to the highest highs and send us crashing to the floor of creation. The wilderness is a classroom where we learn to survive, thrive and sometimes die.
At some point in our lives, we have all been lost in a wilderness of some kind - whether literal or metaphorical - without any direction on how to find our way back home. Some have faced survival decisions in community disasters or personal trauma. Some have been lost in work, wandered in careers and professions. Some have been lost in relationships, crippling addictions, health challenges, or grief.
Scott Hammond, a volunteer search and rescuer, knows that people who have been lost - in the wilderness, in the workplace, or in life - can teach us how to go beyond survival and thrive, regardless of the nature of our personal wildernesses. Through his experience rescuing others and real-life stories, Hammond provides valuable lessons designed to help those who are lost. These narratives communicate that small things matter, that no one is ever lost alone, and that movement creates opportunity.
Being lost is not a geographic problem, but a mental and spiritual problem. Lost people may be deprived of the basics of food, water, and shelter, but they are first deprived of meaning. Restoring that meaning is the first step toward hope, and hope is the beacon that leads you home.

Should be required reading

This book hits home on so many levels. It helps you think outside the box and outside yourself. I will never look at my students, scouts and even my own family the same. This book helps me to look for the lost right here in my own community: the boys around the corner who’s father passed away last month, my wife’s brother that just went through a nasty divorce and is trying to be a good dad to his two daughters, my sister who just lost custody of her three kids and the obvious one, my little brother that has been addicted to many different forms of drugs for the past 20 years and is afraid of being found. This book gives me hope that I can help and give them hope too!
