Jane Parnell will speak about and sign her new book, "Off Trail: Finding My Way Home in the Colorado Rockies"
Jane Parnell took to mountaineering in the Rocky Mountains as a means to overcome her family's history of mental illness and the trauma of her past. By age thirty she became the first woman to climb the state’s 100 highest peaks. While regaining her footing could not save her failing marriage, the mountains were the one anchor in her life that held. "Off Trail" shows us how, by pushing ourselves to the limits of our endurance and by confronting our deepest fears, we can become whole again.
