A Personal Quest for Life-Long Health
“Asthmatic from an early age with frequent asthma attacks that were steadily becoming more severe.” This was my condition when I left Winnipeg, Canada at age 19 with my father and brother by canoe with the destination of the Amazon River. I had no idea of how I would fare and many fears about what may go wrong. 12,181 miles later we arrived in Belem, Brazil — my health transformed by two years of fresh air, exercise, and positive thinking.
This book is dedicated to my Dad for helping me to realize the power of the mind and the body’s ability to heal itself; for instilling in me the confidence and determination I needed to free myself from a life controlled by asthma.
