Summary: February 1979, a chartered Cessna carrying 11-year-old Norman, his father, his father's girlfriend and the pilot, crashed into Southern California's San Gabriel Mountains. Norman's father--a man who was both his coach and hero--was dead, his girlfriend soon to follow. Suspended at over 8,000 feet and engulfed in a blizzard, the grief-stricken boy descended the icy mountain alone. Putting his father's passionate lessons to work, Norman defied the elements and made it through alive--the sole survivor of the crash.
