An Unlikely JourneyBook - 2013
Born into a family of wealth and privilege during World War II, Mark Erwin's childhood was less than normal or happy. The son of a free-spirited, socialite mother who was used to getting whatever she desired, he witnessed her decline into depression, alcoholism, and despair, which almost destroyed the family. This could be called a story of "riches to rags and back to riches," with plenty of life lessons between. "An Unlikely Journey" follows Erwin's miraculous path from a rocky beginning to the curious and extraordinary places and positions neither Mark nor his family and closest friends could have ever envisioned. With no financial resources, little education, and few prospects, he overcame many challenges to achieve success in business, philanthropy, politics, diplomacy, and life, developing along the way a credo to "Make a Difference. Do Good. Have fun."
