Crossroads

My Story of Tragedy and Resilience as a Humboldt Bronco

“You might assume this book is going to engage you, enrapture you, inspire you, and motivate you because of Kaleb’s story about how he’s making his way through the Broncos tragedy and its aftermath, but you’d be wrong. It’s going to do all of those things, but because of much more than that single incident.”

Hayley Wickenheiser

SYNOPSIS

An inspiring story of hope and resiliency

On April 6, 2018, sixteen people died and thirteen others were injured after a bus taking the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a transport truck in a rural intersection. The tragedy moved millions of people to leave hockey sticks by their front door to show sympathy and support for the Broncos. People from more than eighty countries pledged millions of dollars to families whose relatives had been directly involved in the accident.

Crossroads is the story of Kaleb Dahlgren, a young man who survived the bus crash and faced life after the tragedy with resiliency and positivity. In this chronicle of his time with the Broncos and the loving community of Humboldt, Saskatchewan, Dahlgren takes a hard look at his experience of unprecedented loss, but also revels in the overwhelming response and outpouring of love from across Canada and around the world. But this book also goes much deeper, revealing the adversity Dahlgren faced long before his time in Humboldt and his inspiring journey since the accident.

From a childhood spent learning to live with type 1 diabetes to his remarkable recovery from severe brain trauma that astounded medical professionals, Dahlgren documents a life of perseverance, gratitude and hope in the wake of enormous obstacles and life-altering tragedy.

The author will donate a portion of his proceeds from this book to STARS (Shock Trauma Air Rescue Service).
