Story 1: When a Search and Rescue Becomes a Search for Something Else

Greg Ley was deep in the Rocky Mountains, training as an outdoor guide, when his group encountered tragedy. What happened next forever changed his beliefs about the importance of humans to the wilderness.

Story 2: Finding the Way Home in a Purple Canoe

Patrick Dobson was stuck in his life, so he decided to take a trip by canoe from Montana to Missouri. Only he had never canoed before.

Story 3: Catch and Release

Tonia Hanson had a secret. But when a private river retreat turned out to be very, very public, Tonia found unexpected healing.
