A poets hiking vacation turns deadly in soaring Mojave heat; his true survival story leaves you with chills. Rosenthals shocking ordeal was covered by The Discovery Channel and on Fight to Survive with Bear Grylls.

A real estate broker in Downtown Los Angeles, Ed Rosenthals passion is poetry, writing about the historic buildings he sells and advocates to preserve. He hates slumlords, is fed up with his buyers, and finally escapes to the Mojave to bathe at a natural spring and take his favorite hiking trip in Joshua Tree National Park. But his vacation soon turns into a nightmare. Over six grueling days without water, food, or hope, he discovers a well of perseverance in the snippets of his life that play over the deadly but inspiring landscape, in which he finds himself utterly and inexplicably lost. The God of Random Chance has, despite his best efforts his whole life, finally caught up to him. He describes his ordeal and its setting in intimate, vivid detail: surreal visions mix with wayfinding and intuitive wisdom in a poets-eye view of the life-lessons and magic that the desert can hold.
