“The writing is brilliant!
A champion skier, Kenney finesses storytelling with humor and
grace. A must-read
for those in the rehabilitation process, both people with disabilities
and therapeutic professionals.”
Hal O’Leary, Founder and Director National
Sports Center for Disabled at Winter Park.
When you know Cale, it’s easy to forget
she survived one of the most radical female amputations performed.
Nevertheless, she crafted a life of thrills and adventure beyond
what most “intact” people would dare dream. This
entertaining memoir is a picaresque tale of her travels, her
conquest of the ski slopes, her medical challenges, and her determination
to outfox pain. It’s witty and wise, and one of the most
inspiring stories you’ll ever read.”
Virginia Cornell, author of Doc Susie: The True
Story of a Country Physician in the Colorado Rockies
Your book works so well, because you're able
to take the reader from despair to hope--a soupcon of what she
experienced, but very real & powerful.The first part of course
devastating--just heartbreaking. (And those pictures of you from
the hospital bed--you were just a little baby!) But just when
you're not sure you can read on, the Adventures begin and one
begins to understand that there's hope--there is life after death.
Loved C'est La Vie and story about your Dad.
Remarkable and memorable.
New Yorker Cartoonist
