This book is not only about guide dogs, remarkable as they are. It's each person's unique story of making peace with what has been called the Nation's Number One Most Feared Disability.
As a sighted person reading this book, you may catch a glimpse of what it's like for the blind and visually impaired, and marvel at their tenacity and determination to overcome the adversities they have faced. If you are blind or visually impaired, you may find comfort, a sense of community, and possibly hope in the knowledge that others have gone before you into the dark and have found their way--some with patience, some with humor, some kicking and screaming, and some with delight. Each of these solitary journeys is unique, but they all have one thing in common--a gift of dogs.
