Heart on the Mountain - a collection of poetry that describes a journey and a vision both literal and metaphoric upon the land.
The devastation of near a fatal motorcycle accident on Friday 13th September 2002 leaves Philip Sheridan with horrific injuries to his legs, arms, and head. After many long operations, discharged from hospital with his right leg amputated below the knee, thus begins his immense struggle to recover and regain his life.
In the journey he undertakes Philip draws upon his knowledge, skills and experience as a children's therapist to heal the broken places of his being with creative writing. He captures the raw essence of the horrendous undertaking he must now embark upon in poems of rare honesty and integrity.

A remarkable short collection of intimate and revealing poetry by a man who has survived a life changing accident. I hope he writes more and reveals his thoughts on both the interior and exterior landscape he describes so eloquently.
