No Barriers: A Blind Man's Journey to Kayak the Grand Canyon
|Author:||Buddy Erik; Levy Weihenmayer|
Erik Weihenmayer is the first and only blind person to summit Mount Everest. When the mountain was finally behind him, his expedition leader slapped him on the back and said something that would affect the course of Erik's life: "Don't make Everest the greatest thing you ever do." No Barriers is Erik's response to that challenge. It is the moving story of his journey since descending Mount Everest: from leading expeditions around the world with blind Tibetan teenagers to helping injured soldiers climb their way home from war, from adopting a son from Nepal to facing the most terrifying reach of his life: to solo kayak the thunderous whitewater of the Grand Canyon.
