Description

The true story of a boy's courage and triumph, by an award-winning children's author and a renowned children's illustrator.

As a young boy, Rick Hansen loved fishing from the moment he dangled a willow fishing rod over the water and felt that first tug on the line. Then, on his way back from a fishing trip, his life was changed forever when the truck he was riding in flipped as it rounded a sharp curve.

 

In Boy in Motion we meet the boy who loved to fish and play ball, and the young man who learned that as a paraplegic he did not have to leave behind fishing or ballgames or any of his other dreams. Instead, his dreams grew and grew, and he went on to change the lives of many people. This is Rick Hansen's story, a story of courage and triumph sure to touch and inspire young readers everywhere.
