Bill Irwin's life has been filled with pain and promise. Trying to cope with divorce, alcoholism, estranged children and blindness has hardly been easy. In fact, it left Bill with a desire to continue to anesthetize himself with alcohol, even as he conducted seminars on toxicology.... Soon his life changed in many ways, ways that would eventually lead him to answer a call to walk the Appalachian Trail with his Seeing Eye dog, Orient. In a remarkable story of commitment, perseverance, and the will to survive, [the book] portrays Bill Irwin, the first blind person to hike the entire trail. Through fourteen states, along 2,168.9 miles, Bill and Orient walked, sending a message to us all, reminding us of and encouraging us to pursue our own impossible dreams. -Dust jacket
