A compelling, heart-warming story for anyone who’s ever loved a dog … or lost sight of what matters most in life. At the height of a physical conquest for any mountain climber, one misstep took Brendan McCarthy on a tumble that cost him his sight—and just about everything he held dear. But a special dog named Nelson helped pull him back to life and show Brendan how to see what really matters.

    " This was a very easy and enjoyable read. The main character loses his sight in a mountain climbing accident. His journey in learning how to deal with his blindness and how to love his seeing eye dog is heartwarming. The author is blind himself so his insight as to how perceptive you become when blind is very interesting. "
