Author, climber and search and rescue volunteer, Bree Loewen shares stories from her book Found: A Life in Mountain Rescue. In her writing Bree shares the drama and the camaraderie of search and rescue work, as well as the challenges of trying to fit her other roles as wife and mother into what is still largely a masculine environment. In a fearless voice—disarming yet laced with dark humor—Bree guides us through intense recoveries, vivid wilderness landscapes, and the warmth she discovers in motherhood, community, and purpose.
