Twenty-five-year-old Theo Krause is in peak physical condition when a violent collision with a lone aspen tree splinters his neck and his entire future. Now, lying face up and staring at the sky, unable to move his arms or legs, he thinks, This is where I will die. Five hundred miles away, a phone call shatters an ordinary evening at home, plunging his parents into a nightmare. A father’s raw account of his son’s courageous battle for life, Finding Theo is also a deeper story of discovery about the people whose lives became interwoven with Theo’s: the son of an Iranian immigrant who found him beside the trail, a wilderness rescue team, medical professionals – one, the sister of a Columbine High School massacre victim – and the cast of friends who guarded his soul. Finding Theo lingers long after the last page turns, provoking potentially life-altering questions about the meaning of miracle and how the world was made to work.
