David McEwen did not set out to be a writer. He grew up on the family farm outside White Lake, Ontario attending high school in Arnprior with a dream of being a forest ranger. His teen years were spent working on the family farm, preparing for forestry college and working with horses at a riding establishment started by his father and uncle which included competing in horseshoes and amateur rodeos.
The human body is a wondrous work of nature and is limited in what it can do mainly by the mind itself.
In 1976 the author was working at his “dream job” with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and planning his upcoming wedding. While returning from an event tied to that wedding, he was a passenger in a terrible car crash that left him disabled and changed his life forever. This book covers some of the struggles that he went through and the adaptations that can be made when one takes control over one’s mind.
