ASCENT, by Bruce McGhie - ASCENT is a book written by Bruce McGhie which describes his life since becoming a quadriplegic as a result of an Air Force training accident in 1955. In this memoir, he writes of his life as a man dealing with quadriplegia in a pre-handicap accessible world.
Ascent is not merely a story of one man's struggle, against all odds, to achieve a normal life...it is the story of one man's determination, through sheer will, to live an extraordinary life. This book could not come at a better time. With so many young Americans returning from combat, catastrophically damaged, Bruce McGhie's Ascent offers a guide to a full life...an inspirational alternative to despair.
