Hope and Courage Across America

Life is a journey...

Authored by Bob Mortimer

leading ONE FAMILY
with ONE ARM

Life is a journey...
Hope and Courage Across America set out with a simple message. Our hope is in Christ and the courage is in us to use that hope to face the mountains in front of us. Along the way, Bob and his family not only share the message...they learn it.

"I pedaled my handcycle away from the dock and toward Lady Liberty. We stopped at the base of the statue. We had made it. Our bikes had carried us over Snoqualmie Pass and the struggle of that first mountain and through the snowstorms and rattlesnakes of Montana. We raced ahead of dogs crossing the prairies of North Dakota and lingered on the Amish farms of the Midwest. We rolled up and down the hills of Pennsylvania and finally through the city streets of New York. Hope and Courage Across America could pedal no further."

Hope and Courage Across America tells the story of one family's journey from Gig Harbor, Washington to the Statue of Liberty on bicycles. Along the way, Bob Mortimer revisitss the other roads of his life that brought him through losing three limbs to becoming truly whole...the journey never ends.
