Steamboat Springs, CO (PRWEB) April 19, 2007
Beginning April 25, 2007, Access Anything: I Can Do That!™, the second book in a series of travel guides for people and adventurers with disabilities, will hit bookstore shelves all over the country and set a precedent for travel writers everywhere.
An inspirational guide to traveling, adventuring, and sporting with a disability, Access Anything: I Can Do That! dives into the incredible world of adaptive sports and recreation by showcasing 45 different sports that have been adapted for people with disabilities. This one-of-a-kind guide also features essential disability travel information and tips for traveling by airplane, car/rental car, charter bus, cruise ship, and train; essential information for not only travelers with disabilities but all those seeking to market to them and provide travel products for them as well.
For added inspiration, Access Anything: I Can Do That! includes six inspirational interviews with world-class adaptive athletes who have helped change the face of adaptive sports. From Mark Wellman's heroic first ascent of the granite cliffs of 3,300-foot El Capitan in Yosemite National Park, to Erik Weihenmayer's inspiring first-ever summit of Mt Everest by a blind man in 2001. These are the heroes that are paving the way for a more accessible future.
Their first book, Access Anything: Colorado, Adventuring with Disabilities (Fulcrum Press, 2005), was a breakthrough for travel guides, encouraging people with disabilities not just to travel, but to have a sense of adventure and to try activities that may seem out of their ability level, and this series provides them with the tools to do so.
The authors will be on book tour for most of the 2007 summer, visiting NY in April, DC in May, California in June and July, and the southern states in August. They have also recently been featured on NBC's Nightly News and MSNBC's Roundup as well as Denver's KUSA9. See http://www.accessanything.net for these links.
