My Soul Purpose:: Living, Learning, and Healing

Heidi Von Beltz, Author, Peter F. Copeland, With Random House (NY) $24 (16p) ISBN 978-0-679-43626-3
In 1985, Heidi, the 25-year-old daughter of Brad von Beltz, a veteran actor in westerns, was working as a stuntwoman and was on her way to a successful Hollywood acting career. Then, on the set of Cannonball Run, she broke her neck in a car crash. Written with journalist Peter Copeland (She Went to War), this inspiring account details Heidi's rehabilitation, which was achieved despite the gloomy prognosis of doctors, who predicted she would remain a quadriplegic and die within five years. Her parents found a pioneer in spinal surgery who fused their daughter's neck, and with their unwavering support, Heidi embarked on a series of rigorous alternative treatments and spiritual journeys that enabled her to regain movement in her arms and legs and to sit and stand with support. Optimistic and energetic, Heidi today surrounds herself with loyal friends, including actress Melanie Griffith, works on healing herself and reaches out to others with severe physical injuries.
