Not yet rated | write a review

Each of the eight storytellers profiled within has overcome profound physical and mental obstacles to enjoy a productive, independent lifestyle.

Faced with cerebral palsy, epilepsy, Downs Syndrome, alcoholism, poverty, substance abuse, indifference, broken families, and loneliness, each individual has steadfastly fought back, searching for meaningful relationships, for love, for connection to family, friends and community- and all the components of a rewarding life.

Today, these eight people are readers, writers, speakers, lobbyists, drivers, salespeople, and volunteers. They are eloquent voices within their community and beyond.

So Far is their story, told through interviews, first person narrative, and inspiring duo-tone portraiture. This book is candidly moving, a chronicle of perseverance, humour, honour, language, learning and friendship.

Editorial Reviews

"This inspiring book is the result of the cooperation of people who value and support the efforts of variously challenged individuals to tell their stories of accomplishment. . . The beautiful black-and-white photographs that accompany the text say as much about the storytellers as their words do."
