Born to Go
a memoir by Charlie Berger
with Erin Donahue

“Whether you are an adventure junkie, an exotic animal lover or just appreciate a darn good yarn, read Born To Go, a memoir by veterinarian Charlie Berger. A larger-than-life personality himself, Charlie’s exploits will leave you positively breathless as you skitter across the globe with him on long-distance sled dog races or white-water paddles. From raising wolves in Vermont to treating leopards. From playing stickball in Brooklyn to lecturing about Darwin on Viking cruises. Nothing about Charlie Berger is ordinary so don’t be surprised to find his life story, (extra)ordinary as well.”
− Skip Sturman, free-lance writer, world traveler, retired director of Career Services at Dartmouth College

This is why Mud Flat Press is so excited to announce the publication of Charlie Berger’s memoir, Born to Go.
