This memoir captures the story of how an exodus from our nation's capital to rural Nebraska saved an "at-risk youth" from a cycle of drug abuse and fear. Garry Clark's childhood was spread across more than 13 homes all over Washington, D.C. as his parents battled demons of addiction and poverty. Capitalizing on his God-given ability to run, Garry sought out a grain of hope in rural America when he attended Dana College in Blair, Nebraska -- where he holds 11 track records. Garry's story is one of hope, of overcoming incredible circumstances, and of taking risks to find unexpected opportunities.
