Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0984270353, Paperback)

A tale of triumph despite trying circumstances, Sandy Morgan was born with cerebral palsy in a time when the condition was still a mystery. Her parents struggled to cope while swimming in grief and stumbling along in a world with virtually no services, programs or physical therapies; there were just nursing homes and hospitals where those who were different were left to survive. Sandy's mother refused to give up and insisted that under the façade of Sandy's stiff and rebellious muscles, a gifted mind lay hidden.

From summers at Camp Courage to finishing college as a person with disabilities to holding job after job and giving back to others outside the norm, Sandy became a hero, role model, and activist, successfully advocating for better services like improved transportation for the disabled community.

This is the story of a tenacious and fiercely intelligent woman whose mind never stops and whose body never began, who protested in every way she could to ensure access and independence, making a difference for future generations.
