“My struggle to find my way in my own life and my need for meaning collided with my emotional surrender to my dad and the need to be there for him in the final moments of his life,” Peterson writes. “As difficult as it was, I was the one who moved earth and sky to fulfill his final wish.”

This gripping tale follows the author as he learns of his father’s collapse while on vacation in Salzburg, Austria, and then embarks on a last-minute, desperate trip in the dark from his home in Boulder to that small country in Europe where his father is located. While Michael ran through the streets of Salzburg in the seemingly-interminable heat of that unforgettable day in late July, he did not realize it was catalyst to what would become the culmination of a lifelong search.
