9780967025209: Borrowed Dreams: The Roughest, Toughest Jobs on the Planet...and What I Learned from Working Them

T. Scott Gross, writer, pilot, everyday adventurer crosses the continent in search of what drives us to work and live the way we do. Scott pulled on the boots, tied on the apron, or slapped on a hard-hat to bend backs with those everyday heroes who make the world work. Scott worked the factories and the fields, with good guys and bad. He chased drug dealers and dreams across a landscape of dazzling beauty and unexpected danger. T. Scott Gross lives the 'blue' jean adventure bringing home more than tricks of the trade. He brings us tales of the heart and shows us how the work we do is in fact who we are.

"...more than a good read. It's an inspiration to change course. To choose again and turn borrowed dreams into reality."
