Overview

An inspirational story of one man's loss and gain, hope-and an unexpected discovery of calling.

Starting at age 13 when his father's suicide spun his family into chaos, Donald Brown found himself swirling in a sea of uncertainty. He rebelled, was labeled a "loser," dropped out of high school, and put a promising baseball career on hold to join the Marines. A bizarre accident put his plans out of reach so he settled for a factory job where an industrial accident crushed his knee and left him wheelchair-bound. Doctors told him he'd never walk again. Then, his marriage failed. Brown felt untterly defeated.

But while on morphine for pain Brown dreamed he would graduate from Harvard Law School and walk across the America. Everyone told him he was crazy. Undeterred, over the next few years, Brown would accomplish both goals.

This awe-inspiring story chronicles Brown's journey, both physical and metaphorical, to recalibrate his life. From Boston to Big Sur, from the factory floor to the halls of the Ivy League, this book celebrates determination and courage and offers hope for those who need to reboot their lives. The Morphine Dream will leave you cheering.
