Ian Simms is a remarkable young man who, near death, remained in a coma for almost two months. He writes of how his love of flying gave him the strength and fortitude to endure and survive against all odds. The most experienced and knowledgeable members of the medical community had given him less than a 1% chance to live. But survive he did and the chronicle of his recovery is filled with suspense and many miracles. "High Flight" is Ian's story along with those of his determined and loving parents who fought for him, protected him, and stood constantly,in awe of the indomitable spirit and faith that was ever present in their young son. Ian writes of his long and arduous journey back to health with power and clarity. He relates with delight his truly amazing return to Taos in the pilot seat of a Cessna 172 aircraft 153 days after having his upper body completely crushed by a truck. His remarkable story serves as an inspiration to anyone who has questioned the strength and faith of the human spirit and cautions us to remember in the worst of times that nothing is impossible!
