Along the way, award-winning poet, Scott Edward Anderson learns to see the world anew through the eyes of his children, through a deep engagement with the natural world, and through learningand teaching othersto tell stories in a more personal way. Falling Up is a late bloomer’s coming-of-age story as much as it is a book about choice, intention, and commitment.
