Tragedy on the Mountain: A Quadriplegic's Journey from Paralysis to Paralympics

$12

BRENT POPPEN'S "Tragedy On The Mountain" reveals how a sports accident at age sixteen left the author a quadriplegic, but it did not paralyze his athletic dream. Poppen competed in two consecutive Paralympics, Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008, in wheelchair rugby and tennis, earning a Bronze Medal in wheelchair rugby and numerous Gold Medals and world titles in both sports. This book is a riveting read, a true story of courage in the face of adversity, of triumph over tragedy. Brent's road to recovery was riddled with potholes, but in the end he was victorious. He's an inspiration to anyone. BRENT POPPEN, a USA Bronze and Gold Medalist in wheelchair rugby and tennis, is an avid water skier, substitute teacher, counselor and international motivational speaker. He earned a bachelor's degree in social science from Chapman College in Southern California. Brent and his lovely wife, Erica, reside in Paso Robles, California, where he does substitute teaching and Erica is an elementary school teacher.
