Summary
When Erik Weihenmayer was in ninth grade, he lost his ability to see. He was determined that his lack of vision not be viewed as a disability, but rather as a different ability. Erik is the first blind climber to reach the top of Mount Everest, and this book details his journey by kayak through the Grand Canyon. But Erik didn't stop there. He kept setting goals for himself, moving ever forward, because in his words, he "would rather be punched and knocked flat than to be doomed to a life of quiet acquiescence"
