Erik Weihenmayer was born with a degenerative eye disorder that would leave him blind by the age of thirteen.

But Erik was determined to rise above this devastating disability and lead a fulfilling and exciting life.

He shares his struggle to push past the limits imposed on him by his visual impairment-and by a seeing world.

He speaks movingly of the role his family played in his battle to break through the barriers of blindness: the mother who prayed for him and the father who encouraged him.

Erikhas a dream to climb the world's Seven Summits, and he turns that dream into an astonishing reality.
