Through the Wilderness: My Journey of Redemption and Healing in the American Wild by Award-winning Yellowstone photographer and documentary filmmaker Brad Orsted begins in Yellowstone, five months after the family’s arrival, when in an alcoholic haze, Brad stumbled into a field of sage and comes close to an adult male grizzly bear.
Against all odds, Brad survives and comes to the realization he wants to live – he just doesn’t know how. Brad’s ten-year odyssey is about finding the wild inside the human heart. It is a journey of the spirit – a journey to forgiveness and sobriety, to love and life, to memory and ultimately, back to Marley.
Through the Wilderness is a gripping tale of redemption and courage, as Orsted reinvents his life in the wake of loss and grief, and depicts the healing powers of the wild and the redemptive nature of the human spirit.
