Kilimanjaro to Quadriplegic and Back

This book may be ordered from

An award winning essayist, S. Michael Scadron now offers his inspirational memoir, Two Mountains: Kilimanjaro to Quadriplegic and Back—a remarkable, everyman story of inner strength, courage and willingness to endure—as well as the fond and funny moments that arise and comfort in the midst of fear.

An avid runner and trekker, Michael suffered a rare neurological disorder that rendered him quadriplegic just weeks after he reached the summit of Kilimanjaro. Transformed from an active, vibrant 52-year old into a wheelchair-bound patient who needed assistance to feed, move, relieve and clean his body, Michael faced a strange new world. The story recounts his climb up Kilimanjaro and his unprecedented ascent to walk again.

About the Author
S. Michael Scadron lives in Silver Spring, MD with his wife and two rescue cats. A 30+ year veteran Senior Trial Counsel with the U.S. Justice Department, Michael's passion for civil and human rights is evidenced today by his advocacy for wrongfully convicted prisoners in the U.S. and abroad. His non-fiction work has appeared in the Christian Science Monitor, Bethesda Magazine, and on multiple travel websites. 

When he’s not penning a compelling story, Michael stays active, loves to travel, and enjoys family and friends. He is most grateful for reclaiming the ability to walk, and learning how to navigate life differently than ever imagined.
