Left for Dead. The incredible story of Beck Weathers' survival has all the elements of a great adventure: heroism, bravery, a successful human struggle against the forces of nature, the surmounting of great physical and psychological challenges, and a triumph of the human spirit.

Born in Griffin, Georgia, Dr. Weathers received his BS in mathematics and chemistry from Midwestern University and a doctor of medicine from Southwestern Medical School. He had a teaching appointment at Harvard Medical School, has been a partner in MCD Pathology, LLP and has been co-medical director at Medical City Dallas Hospital and LabCorp since 1977.
