Description

 

Harland Eastwood Sr. was pretty much like any other kid while he was growing up. That is, until he lost his right arm in a duck hunting accident at age of sixteen. Faced with the overwhelming challenge of living with only one arm, Harland was not satisfied with just getting by. Instead of getting sympathy from his friends and family, he earned their respect and admiration.  Harland had many interests and talents and managed to excel in almost every endeavor he chose. Things such as mountain climbing, skiing, woodworking, fighting forest fires or just managing his daily routine. If you think that anyone could accomplish these things with one arm, just try tying your shoelaces in a bow or hanging on a ladder and starting a 16d nail a foot above you — all with just one hand. It is not as easy as you might imagine. If you are having trouble just thinking about such things, perhaps this book will help you appreciate  Harland’s courage and determination!!
