Remarkable adventures of a remarkable man,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Far Horizons (Paperback)
Having now read both Frank Gardner's books, I am even more in awe of this remarkable man. Every chapter of Far Horizons is an adventure in its own right. The first two thirds of the book deals with his excursions abroad before his shooting, and helps create an understanding that this is no ordinary man, life it to be lived to the full and things only really get interesting for him when boundaries have been pushed to the limit. The way he is then able to approach life after he has lost the use of his legs is simply extraordinary, scuba diving, abseiling (yes, abseiling in a wheelchair!), skiing and more. It is his sheer determination and refusal to take his situation, literally, lying down that I am so in awe of - a role model for us all!
