A Quiet Roar: Living with Multiple Sclerosis
by Heidi Redl
Caitlin Press | MSAA Book #430
Growing up on a pioneer ranch in the rough and dusty days of the late 1960s and 1970s, Heidi learned at a young age to be self-reliant and tenacious. Life as a rancher had given her the courage she would need to bravely and persistently fight back against her diagnosis of MS in 2004. This compelling and honest memoir describes her struggle living with a progressive disease, but also highlights the support and incredible friendships she found along the way.
