"Try if you can to imagine the utter horror that filled a young mother when her four year old came running into the house with blood streaming down his cheeks and then to realize the blood was coming from where his eye had been moments before. That young girl was my dear mother. I was that child. Life begins at birth; however, I feel mine really started in a vacant lot in Conrad, Montana, one month before my fourth birthday." With wit and candor Sheldon draws us into his diverse life. Blinded at the age of four, a married high school dropout at 17, he plunged into any job he could get to support his family. Every endeavor benefited by his determination to be the best that he could be. He had his own auto repair shop for thirty years, was an avid hunter and fisherman, served for twelve years as a county commissioner, became a Russian interpreter, and expressed himself as a sculptor and woodworker. Parents will be emboldened by his message to encourage rather than shield a child facing any type of handicap. As the father of a developmentally challenged daughter he was compelled to help others confronted by the same type of situation as a board member on the Developmentally Disabled Council. Anyone teetering on the brink of indecision about the next step to take in life will be motivated by his "just do it" philosophy. Whether it was owning his own trucking company, or leaving rural Montana to work in Washington, D.C., he pursued every possibility for success. If you just yearn for a good belly laugh, enjoy his adventures while hunting moose in north central Montana, driving a snow mobile at high speeds up a mountain, or learning to water ski at the family reunion with all nieces and nephews yelling from shore, "You can do it, Uncle Dale!" All of Sheldon's experiences and achievements are proof that blindness can be a stepping stone rather than a road block.

About the Author:

The obvious difference between sculptor Dale Sheldon and other artists is that he is totally blind. In hindsight, he realizes that losing his eyesight just before his fourth birthday helped him see that raising a family and running a business in rural Montana is not for the faint of heart.
