A book about battling addiction, written by a local resident, will donate money to benefit those coping with the illness. 

Trail of The Warrior is a novel inspired by the life stories of four individuals recovering from addiction and search for a higher power, all with the help of a dog named Rosie.

The author is the Executive Administrator of the Crawford County Mental Health Center, Richard Pfeiffer.

100% of the proceeds from the book sales will go toward building a new addiction treatment center for the non-profit, Families and Children Together.

The book will be released on December 23rd and a book signing will be held at Meadowbrook Mall from 10 to 4.
