Synopsis

An inspirational and gripping first-person account of determination, adversity and survival against the odds.



'Uplifitng and brave' - Stylist



The must-read true story of 2020.



In 2018, Claire Nelson made international headlines. She was in her thirties and was beginning to burn out - her hectic London life of work and social activity and striving to do more and do better in the big city was frenetic and stressful. Although she was surrounded by people all of the time, she felt increasingly lonely.



When the anxiety she felt finally brought her to breaking point, Claire decided to take some time off and travelled to Joshua Tree Park in California to hike and clear her head. What happened next was something she could never have anticipated.



While hiking, Claire fell 25 feet, gravely injuring herself and she lay alone in the desert - mistakenly miles off any trail, without a cell phone signal, fighting for her life. She lay in the elements for four days until she was miraculously found - her rescuers had not expected to find her alive.



In THINGS I LEARNED FROM FALLING Claire tells her incredible story and what it taught her about loneliness, anxiety and transformation and how to survive it all.

Claire Nelson is a New Zealander who's spent more than a decade in London working in food and travel journalism. Her writing has appeared in titles including Westjet, Delicious, ELLE, Lodestars Anthology and Jamie Oliver. After recovering from her accident in California, she spent a year living in Vancouver, Canada, where she wrote this, her first book. Claire, her boots and her hiking stick are now back in London. @clairenelson @ladyeclaire
