Overview

Experience five wildly different journeys across America.
Dip your toes into the Pacific Ocean after pedaling 4,100 miles with a silver-haired, spitfire grandma on a trike. Feel your lungs explode as you struggle the last few miles up and over the Rocky Mountains with Dick & Rick on their bike/wheelchair. Beg your quivering biceps to stay in the race with Team Can Be Venture racing their hand cycles. Hear the wheels of your skateboard hug the hairpin turns down the Appalachians as Jack shares the memory of his son across the US. Find refreshment in the warm, bottled water taste of youthful idealism as Matt & Brandon run mile after mile, sharing their dream to bring clean water to the children of Africa.
These are the stories of individuals who crossed America, sometimes under harsh conditions, to spotlight individuals with disabilities, share memories of loved ones, or help those in need. This book is a celebration of strength. Of ordinary folks doing extraordinary things with their lives. Of shouting in the face of obstacles, “Yes, I can!” Of living life based on what it can be instead of what is.
Share their powerful stories as they leave footprints of compassion and selflessness in their wake, road warriors in search of adventure.

Meet the Author

Janet Buckwalter gathered the material for this book and wrote about her own adventure crossing the U. S. on a recumbent tricycle. She made her journey over a three-year period, traveling from Yorktown, Virginia, to Kentucky on the first leg, the following year making a trip from Colorado back to Kentucky, and, finally, pedaling from Colorado to the Pacific Ocean.

    Reviewed by Karen Pirnot for Readers' Favorite

    In One More Mountain, editor Janet Buckwalter has offered the reader multiple stories about handicapped individuals who have simply refused to lie down and ignore the challenges life has to offer. The reader will meet a brain-damaged young man whose father pushes and pedals him up and down a mountain. You will meet a team of paralyzed men who race as if there were no handicap to be recognized. When you meet skateboarders trekking across America's highways, you'll be amazed by the organization and resilience it takes just to get on the road each and every day. Although running is a recognized manner of raising awareness, the manner in which it is accomplished will have heads shaking. In order to discover America, editor Buckwalter decides to bicycle across the country in three consecutive summers.

    Readers will be awestruck by the planning and organization of the individuals who dared to defy the odds of endurance and weather conditions. Their motivation and stamina is probably unmatched but their will to complete their individual journeys is a given. I most appreciated the stories written in the first person as they gave the reader an inkling of thoughts and emotions, apart from the logistics of the journeys themselves. It is evident that most of the Road Warriors are not professional writers. But, I don't believe this detracted from the impact of the challenges they faced nor the courage they demonstrated in undertaking their various journeys. Although being handicapped was an inspirational twist to the stories, the non-handicapped were equally compelling in their motivation to raise awareness of handicapped individuals.
