Book excerpt: The Instant #1 National Bestseller--Now in Paperback On April 6, 2018, sixteen people died and thirteen others were injured when a bus taking the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a transport truck at a rural intersection in Saskatchewan. The tragedy moved millions of people to leave hockey sticks by their front doors to show sympathy and support for the Broncos. And people from more than eighty countries pledged millions of dollars to families that had been directly affected by the accident. Crossroads is the story of Kaleb Dahlgren, a young man who survived the bus crash and faced life after the accident with positivity and grit. In this chronicle of his time with the Broncos and in the loving community of Humboldt, Saskatchewan, Dahlgren takes a hard look at his experience of unprecedented loss yet 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 a 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.
