Erik Weihenmayer's life is so rich, so full of accomplishments, that his story alone is interesting. But paired with a seasoned narrator, the blind adventurer's tale becomes even more alive. Narrator Holter Graham does more than simply recount the physical challenges of climbing mountains and conquering rapids while blind. He also brings to life the emotional challenges of Weihenmayer's life--the frustrations of dealing with a difficult brother and of trying to adopt a boy from Nepal. Graham gives each person in the book a distinct vocal identity, complete with varied tones, inflections, and accents. While ensuring that listeners always know who's who, he also reflects the dignity of the many people who are part of Weihenmayer's life. A discussion between the author and a pal follows.
