When you are a Wallenda, you grow up knowing that the end of life might be just a sudden strong breeze away. For seven generations, these high-climbing tightrope walkers have tested the limits of gravity and balance. Nik Wallenda, now known as "the King of the Wire," was born in 1979, less than a year after Karl Wallenda, the founder of the circus dynasty, fell to his death. In Balance, Nik describes not only his long performing career (he made his high wire debut at the age of thirteen); he also describes the role that faith plays for him both on and off the wire. A singular memoir in more ways than one.
