Leaping upon the Mountains: Men Declaring Victory over Sexual Child Abuse (2000, North Atlantic Books and Small Wonder Books), continues to explore and proclaim the reality of recovery. In this second work, Mike Lew presents the triumphs of hundreds of male survivors from over forty countries, providing hope and resources for survivors in each stage of their healing.
