There's a tough rapids up ahead. Pick up the drag bags, get down and in, and hang on. It's going to be a bumpy ride.
The Grand Canyon can change lives, and with the help of some of the people and things Nanci Chladek found there, it changed hers more than most. Once a prisoner of many irresponsible bad choices, she had been near ending her life. Her dramatic turn away from the life she'd once led cleaned up her act and had made her become pretty religious as she learned to be a Grand Canyon boatman. With a future in front of her that she had once nearly given up on having, she has to figure out what to do with it. It will take her family, her friends, and her newfound faith to help her work it out.

I want to thank my usual crew of editors, Bob Haeffner, Warren Stewart, Derek Wright and someone who wishes to remain anonymous for their help in chasing down fluffs, typos, and downright errors. There would be many more of them than the few that slip through thanks to their careful oversight. Also, thanks to Doug Gehon, who does the e-book conversions, and special thanks to Bill Stacy for fact checking in some areas I am not very familiar with. This book is better than it would have been without their help.
