GONE: A Memoir of Love, Body, and Taking Back My Life with Dr. Linda K. Olson

Gone Book Cover

  In this episode of  The Mountain Life  Lynn Ware Peek's guest is  Triple amputee Dr. Linda K. Olson. She joins the show to discuss her memoir, GONE: A Memoir of Love, Body, and Taking Back My Life . The inspiring true story begins when Linda is hit by a train after her car stalls on the tracks and about how she learned to walk with prostheses, change diapers and insert IVs with one hand. Despite challenges, Olson pursued an illustrious thirty-year career as an award-winning Professor of Radiology at UCSD and raised two children to canoe, backpack, kayak and travel in remote places.
