What becomes of a country lad who loves daredevil adventure, only to discover that he is slowly losing his sight?
What courage does it take for him to pursue his dream of becoming an elite athlete representing his country?
Kieran Modra’s inspiring story tells us about a shy country boy in a city boarding school, an adolescent struggling with his identity as he comes to terms with a disability, and the Australian athlete standing atop a dais as he accepts his gold medal.
’Kieran Modra: The way I see it is a fantastic read, which not only highlights the bravery and resilience of a boy going blind, but simultaneously traces the history and rise in popularity of the Paralympics and the progress in human understanding of vision impairment and what can be achieved with a positive can-do attitude. Every cyclist – no, every Australian – needs to read this book to enjoy what it means to represent this wonderful country. Kieran’s story is an emotional roller coaster and written with great sensitivity so the reader emerges with a deeper understanding of disability and a reminder of the power of the human spirit. A wonderful book about an extraordinary Australian athlete.’ – Anna Meares, Australian Olympic, World, Commonwealth and National Cycling Champion
