“YOU CAN KEEP GOING LONG AFTER YOU THINK YOU CAN’T.”
Earl Goldmann’s poignant and moving memoir is the story of a young boy growing up in Tillamook, Oregon, and the terrible injury inflicted by the man who should have been his mentor. As he struggled to understand and to forgive, an unexpected gift from a faraway relative gave him an outlet for channeling his anger into a positive life.
While playing basketball at Oregon State University, Goldmann is severely injured in a horrific car wreck and is forced to return to his hometown to recover. With his athletic scholarship gone, can he realize the life he has always dreamed about?
Earl Llewellyn Goldmann is a past high school social studies teacher and coach from Tillamook, Oregon. After a successful teaching and coaching career in the Portland, Oregon area, he retired in Scottsdale, Arizona.
In 2005, he founded Brooks Goldmann Publishing Company, LLC, with his wife, award winning author, Patricia L. Brooks. They attend many book festivals and writing workshops each year, and stay active in the writing community in both Arizona and Oregon.
