Things I Learned from Falling Claire Nelson
920.71 NEL – (Alexandra, Frankton and Queenstown)

Claire Nelson’s modern, London lifestyle was taking its toll. As a result of her experiences of burnout, anxiety and loneliness she decided to take time out and hike Joshua Tree Park, California.

This true and inspirational story of determination, survival, transformation and learning tells of a 30-foot-fall, near death experience, chance rescue and the injuries that ensued. All of which made a place for Claire in international headlines last year.
