Two Shadows - the inspirational story of one man's triumph over adversity


Link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0044KM0GO

The autobiography Two Shadows reveals the remarkable story behind a man known for his passion for mountaineering, his irrepressible sense of humor, and his fascinating tales of adventure.

From the darkness of a cell in solitary confinement to the top of peaks throughout the world, this is the story of one man's journey to recover from a troubled past.

4.5 Stars / 26 Reviews

Quote:
Part poignant and heartbreaking short stories told with such openness, honesty and humor, part guidebook for the mountaineer and part wild adventure tales all rolled into one!
Quote:
Winger shows he knows his way around the English language (which, considering his early history as a truant and prison inmate might surprise some) and writes with verve and humor
Quote:
it's a fantastic read for anyone interested in mountaineering or who wants to be inspired.
Two Shadows is FREE on Sunday, April 29. Please check the price on amazon to make sure it is free when you order a copy -- and thanks for reading!

Thank you for the link. I like mountain climbing/adventure/triumph over adversity stories and this sounds just right. I am looking forward to reading it.

Don't let your past dictate your future

Many thanks to reviewer Betty Lundgren writing for the Beacon for her thoughtful and insightful article about Charlie and his memoir, Two Shadows. She writes:

Quote:
We all have shadows of past transgressions in our lives, but probably not many of us have the title of “felon” on our resume.
(Did she get your attention yet?)

Quote:
Winger describes in Two Shadows his two very different lives bridged by a love of the outdoors and mountaineering. He had a choice for where he could stand, either in the shadow of what seemed to be an insurmountable mountain or casting his own shadow at the top of a peak in the glorious sunshine of a better life. It is an amazing story demonstrating where the choices we make in life can take us.
The full article can be read here.
