Program: Award winning Author, Cart Griffith, Lost in the Wild
In the wilderness, one false step can make the difference between a delightful respite and a brush with death. Join Cary Griffith as he conveys the story of Jason Rasmussen, a third-year medical student who loved the forest's solitude, walking alone into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness on a crisp fall day. After a two day trek into a remote area of the woods, he stepped away from his campsite and made a series of seemingly trivial mistakes that left him separated from his supplies, wet and lost as cold darkness fell. Enduring days without food or shelter, Jason faced the full harsh force of wilderness. In the book, LOST IN THE WILD, Griffith takes readers with Jason as he enters realms of pain, fear and courage, as he suffers dizzying confusion and unending frustration, and as he overcomes seemingly insurmountable hurdles in a race to survive.
