Summary
  • "Colten Moore explains how--in the wake of the devastating freestyle snowmobile accident that killed his older brother, Caleb, at Aspen's Winter X Games--he managed to return to win gold"--
  • Raised on the prairies of the Texas Panhandle, Colten and Caleb Moore heeded another call and became stars on the burgeoning freestyle ATV and snowmobile circuits. If it had wheels, they could flip it, and they led a band of pioneers intent on breaking ground in a new sport before multitudes of fans at the X Games and beyond. In the wake of the devastating freestyle snowmobile accident that killed his older brother, Caleb, at Aspen's Winter X Games, Colten managed to return to win gold. He describes how, in the pursuit of happiness, we can lose everything, only to find it again-- often in the most unlikely place
Summary
Family bonds and brotherly love shine in a poignant and exciting memoir as richly layered and emotionally complex as Into Thin Air and Friday Night Lights when, in the wake of the devastating freestyle snowmobile accident that killed his older brother Caleb at Aspen’s Winter X Games, Colten Moore returns to win gold
