From the Author:

It could have been any family that day, but it was my husband's and this is his story.
The unsettling story of a weekend camping trip gone awry and the drunk and high "wrong way mom" who drove four children to their deaths, also killing her and three others. A chronological look at the four hour drive that terrorized motorists destroyed three families and captivated the public.

The changing stories, the changing excuses, and the continuing search for the truth.
"She had contacted her brother two hours before to say she wasn't feeling well" NY State police conference (7/27/09)
"A drunk driver did not do this to your family," Daniel Schuler (9/1/09)

** This book is based on the facts and information as presented to the family from the state police investigators, district attorney's office, private investigators, medical examiners, and other sources as listed. Every theory has a credible source. If you believe there is a inaccuracy or you can actually produce conflicting documentation; please feel free to email the website for information.     
 Just wishing it was not true does not change anything.

From the Inside Flap:

A Message from Michael ...   
 There is no greater pain than having lost my father and brother from the senseless act of a drunk driver. My love for my father and brother, Guy, will continue to be as strong as it has been my entire life. This book is not only about the horrific acts of Diane Schuler and the suffering that she has caused so many people but also about the added pain caused by those who fabricated stories about her actions that day. I was raised in an Italian-American family. My father taught me how important family is. I especially remember when he told me that my brother will "alwaysbe [my] brother" and that I should always be there for him--and that my brother would always be there for me. My brother was always there for me.    In keeping the promise that I made to my father, I hope this book can in some way speak for my brother, Guy, and my father. They are two of the greatest people the world will ever have known.
   Michael Bastardi Jr.

Book Description Dog Ear Publishing, United States, 2011. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.On July 26, 2009 Diane Schuler packed up the campsite, piled five children into her minivan and headed for home on Long Island after a weekend of camping, a drive that should have taken two hours from upstate, NY. Four hours later, she sped down the Taconic State Parkway in Westchester County driving in the wrong direction. As panicked motorists swerved out of her way, she continued for almost two miles. Blowing horns, flashing lights, and waving arms did nothing to deter her. Rounding a curve in the road, she rocketed head on into an oncoming SUV. The vehicles seemed to explode as they hit. The minivan plunged downhill and burst into flames as the SUV was pushed across two lanes and struck by another SUV. In the smoldering vehicle and twisted metal scattered along the highway, lay the bodies of eight people. Days later came the headlines; Wrong Way Crash Mom Drunk and High!.
