Footsteps to Freedom (Digital)


Footsteps to Freedom — Tales of Therapy in Rural India transports the reader into rural India during the height of the polio epidemic. This book explores how a volunteer physiotherapist from the British Columbia Interior turns adversity into advantage when she conquers her fears of the unknown and leaves home to immerse herself in work with the differently abled in rural South India, leading to life-changing experiences.

This journey describes how children with polio progress from crawling in their village through rehabilitation and education to become adults leading productive lives. See life through the eyes of these children and follow their footsteps through these pages as you travel from Canada to rural India with interludes in England.
