Synopsis: The inspiring story -- with over 65,000 copies sold -- of one of Canada's best-loved heroes now with a new introduction and updated design.

In 1973, Rick Hansen was a carefree teenager hitchhiking home from a fishing trip, a kid who lived and breathed sports. But after the truck he was riding in went out of control and crashed, Hansen was left a paraplegic. For some people that could have been the end. For Rick Hansen it was the beginning of a story that is at once sad and funny, heartbreaking and inspirational.


Hansen takes you from the first painful days and frightening nights in hospital, through the gritty process of rehabilitation, to his return to competition as a world champion of wheelchair sports. It is the story of the Man in Motion Tour -- Rick Hansen's incredible 24,901.55-mile wheelchair journey through 34 countries around the world. It is also the love story of Hansen and his wife, Amanda, a physiotherapist whom Hansen calls his "lifeline." And it is a success story -- Rick Hansen has raised millions of dollars for spinal cord research, rehabilitation and wheelchair sports as well as raised awareness about the disabled.

About the Author: Jim Taylor, author or co-author of fourteen books and a veteran sports columnist with the Vancouver Province, writes with first-hand knowledge of the problems of the disabled: his daughter became a quadriplegic with diffuse brain damage as the result of a skiing accident in 1976 at the age of fourteen. Jim Taylor lives in Vancouver with his wife, Deborah.
