Authors reflect on a near-death experience and miracle rescue.

One minute Dean Waggenspack was hiking along the St. Croix tide pools with his wife and son. The next he was trapped in a small, pitch-dark cavern in the rocks with no way out. His near-death experience, miracle rescue, and later reflections are the subject of a new book co-authored with his wife Rose, The Ledge and The Abyss: Near Death, Rescue, & the Search for Meaning
