Product Overview

Matthew Miller had just pedaled up a mountain pass. He was 20, a member of the University of Virginia triathlon club, so fit his resting pulse was 42! He was on top of the world in so many ways, in love, with dreams of attending medical school. And then, cycling along the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia, tragedy struck. The real story is not what happened, but what happened after. Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Michael Vitez shares with you the incredible, humbling, miraculous story of Matt?s survival and recovery. It is a story, truly, of grace and grit, of an America that shines ? families, community, individuals and institutions. The story is as gripping as it is inspiring. Ride along! The author first chronicled Matt Miller?s story for his newspaper, The Philadelphia Inquirer. The response from readers was so overwhelming ? and Matt?s continued recovery so remarkable ? that Vitez immersed himself in Matt?s world. The Road Back is not only about a young man?s drive to reclaim his life, but about the the people who rode with him, rescued him, helped him heal, and saw up close his amazing comeback.
