NOT ON HAND, but usually Ships in 2-7 Days


Falling Up is a moving personal essay about the struggle to become an authentic, vulnerable, purpose-driven man in the 21st century and, ultimately, about making one’s dream a reality. Along the way, award-winning poet, Scott Edward Anderson learns to see the world anew through the eyes of his children, through a deep engagement with the natural world, and through learning—and teaching others—to tell stories in a more personal way. Falling Up is a late bloomer’s coming-of-age story as much as it is a book about choice, intention, and commitment.
