If you really love me, throw me off the mountain is a memoir of love and adventure. It tells of one very whole woman’s experience of being disabled in a world that cannot imagine her being anything other than broken. In 2014, aerial dancer Erin Clark moves from Canada to command the stages of New York City. When her wheelchair breaks, sepsis nearly kills her, and her marriage ends, she is flung out of her life and into a dramatic series of events which culminates with her moving to Spain to join a paragliding school and master one of the world's most dangerous sports. When she falls in love in the Andalusian mountains, she learns that a flying wheelchair might not be the biggest risk of all.
