About the Book

A Short Walk to the Edge of Life: How My Simple Adventure Became a Dance with Death --- and Taught Me What Really Matters

It was supposed to be a simple day hike. Scott Hubbartt was a military veteran with years of survival training. Everyone who knew him considered him an expert adventurer.

But Scott’s trek into the treacherous backcountry canyons of the Peruvian Andes turned into a desperate fight to survive after he became hopelessly lost. As his eight-hour hike lengthened into days, Scott faced dehydration, hunger and exhaustion. And that’s when his true journey began.

Chronicling the failures and miracles of a remarkable physical and spiritual passage, A SHORT WALK TO THE EDGE OF LIFE is the gripping, true story of a man who had to come to the end of himself before he could find his way home.
