About the Book

Death, aka Tod, has grown callous. His siblings, the Archangels, decide it’s time to do something about it. With their Father’s permission they assign Tod Guardianship of a young mortal—but things don’t go exactly as planned. Or do they? Dodging interference from his brother Lucifer who is determined to win Death’s charge over to the dark side, Tod reluctantly bumbles through a mortal life learning to paddle, windsurf, hike, ski, and climb along the way. This rollicking tale takes the reader from the beaches of South Carolina, to Rome, and into the depths of the Grand Canyon. On the way it offers glimpses into what it means to live, to die, and to love.

About the Author

Kathryn Anne Michaels is the author of the non-fiction bestseller Wednesday’s Children, Memoirs of a Nurse-turned-social-worker in Rural Appalachia. A retired family practice nurse, social worker, EMT, ski patroller and whitewater river guide, the author draws from years of outdoor experience to give Tod, the Angel of Death—and the reader—an exciting ride to heaven, hell, and back again by way of some of the most beautiful rivers and hikes in the world. When not up in the mountains, on ski slopes or whitewater rivers, Kathryn and her geologist husband work on their ruminant rescue farm on a small island in the Pacific Northwest.
