More than a decade ago, while driving through Arizona, nineteen-year-old Jami and a friend took a wrong turn in their Chevy Mini-Blazer. They spent the next eleven days stranded and fighting for their lives on a logging road that the state had closed--without first being checked for travelers in distress--during a blinding snowstorm.
Here, Jami shares the trauma of those endless days , the miracle of a stunning rescue, the grief over losing her legs, and the strength and courage it has taken not only to walk again but also to run like the wind. Wise, forthright, and astonishing, Up and Running recounts Jami's physical, emotional, and legal battles ( she filed a suit against the state) and shows how she used adversity as a stepping-stone to her recovery while also discovering love and joy beyond her wildest dreams.
