The doctors diagnose him with diabetes and only through the miracle of modern medicine does he survive.

But when he realizes hes been given a second chance, Mac discovers that he has the will to do the impossible-what the Greeks call Pleonexia-and hes going to leave his high-end lifestyle for something better.Over his wifes objections, they and their dog move out of the city and homestead thirty acres in Californias High Sierra wilderness.

The next few months bring encounters with bureaucracy, inept and hostile workers, blizzards, and forest fires as Macs flatlander dream turns into a nightmare. He publishes a book of poems to great reviews and negligible sales, but he also grows cynical and grouchy. Maybe the impossible really is impossible.Mac wants to give up and move back to the city, but his wife loves their little cabin in the forest and refuses to leave. Its during a one-hundred year flood that Mac manages to pull off a miracle in the finest tradition of magic realism and discovers what its truly like to be alive.
