Amazing America

Most of us would be daunted at the prospect of volunteering and hitchhiking across America.. or even our own countries for that matter.

  1. The Wayward Wheeler recounts an amazing of his travels around the United States – in a wheelchair. He states that he travels to become free, to become loose. It’s interesting that he encounters many barriers as anyone else does when entering a new environment but he also has to deal with the added challenge of obviously being disabled. Everyone needs to reflect on the idea of how hard it is to adjust to a new situation much less if we are disabled when we enter that new situation! “The Wanderer” offers a vivid account of his travels throughout the United States and gives us a peek at ourselves – both inside and out…
