Touch the top of the world : a blind man's journey to climb farther than the eye can see by Erik Weihenmayer( )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erik Weihenmayer was born with retinoscheses, a degenerative eye disorder that would leave him blind by the age of thirteen. But Erik was determined to rise above this devastating disability and lead a fulfilling and exciting life. In this poignant and inspiring memoir, he shares his struggle to push past the limits imposed on him by his visual impairment-and by a seeing world. He speaks movingly of the role his family played in his battle to break through the barriers of blindness: the mother who prayed for the miracle that would restore her son's sight and the father who encouraged him to strive for that distant mountaintop. And he tells the story of his dream to climb the world's Seven Summits-and how he turned that dream into astonishing reality, something fewer than two hundred mountaineers have achieved. From the snow-capped summit of McKinley to the towering peaks of Aconcagua and Kilimanjaro to the ultimate challenge, Mount Everest, this is a story about daring to dream in the face of impossible odds. It is about finding the courage to reach for that ultimate summit and transform your life into something truly miraculous

No barriers : a blind man's journey to kayak the Grand Canyon by Erik Weihenmayer( Book )

2 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"No Barriers is about my journey since coming down from Mt. Everest in 2001, and the path to where I am today. It is the story of my own life, the personal and professional struggles in the pursuit of growth, learning, and family, as well as a dream to kayak one of the world's great rivers as a blind athlete. It is also about the many people I've encountered along the way who possess what I call a "No Barriers" mindset, who live a No Barriers life. It highlights these pioneers who give those around them the courage to do great things. People who have risked failure, transcended their personal barriers, and shown others a way forward: scientists and innovators, artists and musicians, climbers and adventurers, activists and soldiers. No Barriers is a way of living, and it exists in all of us, like a deep internal light. But sometimes through trauma, loss, isolation, and disillusionment, people get shoved into a dark place, and that light is almost extinguished. Making hard choices is what feeds that light, and becomes the energy we need to propel us forward. This book is about making the hard choices to fuel that flickering light, so that we can ignite with purpose and become our very best selves"--

No Barriers is about my journey since coming down from Everest fifteen years ago, and the path to where I am today. It is the story of my own life--the ups and downs both personal and professional but also the many people I've encountered who possess what I call a "No Barriers" mindset, who live a No Barriers life. It's about people who give those around them the courage to do great things. People who have risked failure, transcended their personal barriers, and shown others a way forward: scientists and innovators and technologists and artists and musicians and activists and soldiers.No Barriers is a way of living, and it lives in all of us. I think there is something inside all of us, a kind of light. But sometimes--through injury, disease, tragedy, mental illness, and trauma--people get shoved into a dark place, and that light is almost extinguished. A lot of times, making hard choices is what feeds that light, and becomes the energy we need to propel us forward. This book is about making the hard choices to fuel that light flickering in all of us, so that we can ignite with purpose and become our very best selves
