    1. Inspiring story of overcoming adversity - incrementally. With the good fortune of making several unselfish friends, Mark makes a life anew after becoming a parapelegic resulting from a horrific climbing accident. Like so many strong, young men who've lost limbs or the use thereof, he did not give in to despair, and by his determination goes on to exceed his earlier ambitions and to inspire others.

    2. When you feel weak emotionally, Climbing Back by Mark Wellman and John Flinn will inspire you to "Climb your mountains!" I've had the pleasure to meet Mark in his wheelchair at a speaking engagement at Sac State. His story is Amazing! Thank you, Mark Wellman, for signing a copy of your book for me!
