This short (under one hundred pages) non-fiction work fulfills two significant purposes: non-fiction and the topic of persons with various physical handicaps. The book, however, was written in the 70's and paints what I feel an overly rosy (maybe because of the short length of the book) picture of how the "normal", healthy camp counselors changed the world for a group of individuals. I would have like a more reciprocal relationship developed.
Nonetheless, until I find something better--I suspect this book will stay in the "reading list" for another year. I need to find a better way to use this text as a springboard for further study. Maybe it wasn't the book--it was the teacher. Ouch!
