In the summer of 1970, a storm raged around a group of young canoers on Opeongo Lake in Ontario, Canada’s Algonquin Provincial Park. Should they push on with their trek or turn back? Their decision turned an adventure into tragedy, and three young men drowned.
Duane Miller was a 17-year-old in a group of young men clinging to a capsized canoe, struggling to stay alive. The fact that he survived when others didn't left him questioning the choices he made during the crisis. Although God used this event powerfully to transform many involved, Duane grappled with the tragedy for years before finally allowing God’s peace to set him free.  
The deadly tragedy would ultimately show how God reveals himself in powerful and unexpected ways. This riveting, firsthand account of the tragedy and its aftermath demonstrates how God is at work in the grand scheme of things. It is a journey through the deep waters of grief and guilt to the restful shores of hope and peace.
This book will resonate with people who love the outdoors and real-life survival stories. It offers encouraging insights to anyone struggling to understand the will of God.

Great story! I was there! I'll never forget!!Review by Eldon
Duane worked on this for at least 5 years. It impacted him much more than me. He was closer to the drowning. I was in the group that made safely it to the island. It was awesome to have this book published over four decades later while my wife still worked at
Our Daily Bread (Discovery House) publishing!! Only God could have worked this out.
Duane's book helped me remember details I missed or forgot even though I was there.

Great read! Life-changing storyReview by Sue
Great story that I couldn't put down. Lots of appropriate Scripture and a clear plan of salvation.
I would have loved to hear more about his wife, kids, and grandkids and how this story has affected them.
Also, how did family and friends respond after he came to face the truth as he did with his seminary friends? Would love to hear the scope of that.
