Overview

Rick Hansen is specifically written to meet the needs of adolescents and adults who are reluctant readers. The photographs, maps, and illustrations reflect the text, making the words easy to decode. This high-interest, low-vocabulary biography is ideal for English as a Second Language or adult basic education students.

At the age of 15, Rick Hansen (1957- ) suffered an accident and was confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life. Unwilling to let his disability hold him back, Hansen showed the world what a person with a disability can do. He wheeled through 34 countries on a Man in Motion World Tour to raise millions of dollars for spinal cord research and awareness.
