Always Looking Up: My Quest to Explore America
by Andrew Mulligan
Andrew Mulligan is not your average twenty-six year old man. From early childhood, he wanted to be an explorer and world traveler. After a freak diving accident left him paralyzed from the neck down at age fifteen, he still saw no reason to give up his dreams.
Learn how Andrew (with the help of two caregivers) traveled from the East coast to the West in his motorized wheelchair. Andrew helped to raise $100,000 for spinal cord rejuvenation research. Hampered by muscle cramps, his caregiver would retrieve a gurney from the rescue vehicle and Andrew would lie down as his caregiver pushed him along.
The twenty pages of stunning photographs were taken using a camera that operated with a switch that Andrew pressed with his tongue.
While you read, you'll be cheering for Andrew's success - and celebrating his positive attitude.
