Synopsis : Everyone encounters new experiences on a daily basis regardless of age. However, some people seek out and embrace them while others try to avoid them. Risk taking, overcoming obstacles, setting goals and vigorously pursuing a specific objective gives rise to learning, energizes the spirit and builds self-confidence. Often there are other unexpected rewards. This book contains five short adventure stories that provide lessons from people who attempted new activities. Opening up to new experiences expands personal boundaries, establishes new limits and sets the groundwork to achieve objectives or goals once thought to be unachievable. Overcoming the inherent challenges of doing something new allows for physical, emotional and psychological growth. Yet for many, trying something new is a daunting challenge. The theme of first-time adventures, experienced in the High Sierra, exemplifies how the combination of planning, hard work and determination can push a person's performance, knowledge and understanding of self to a new level. The pursuit of "First Tracks" by engaging in unique experiences is filled with humor, challenge, reward and disappointment but ultimately produces a well-rounded person, with a matchless story to tell. The stories in this book will capture your heart and mind and satisfy your appetite for adventure. Each story provides an unexpected twist that rewards the reader right up to the final word.
