Written by outdoors sports expert and renowned wildlife author John E. Phillips, Wheelin’ in the Wild features personal experiences from wheelchair users that share outdoors sports for all, including:
- Paralyzed in a motorcycle accident 9 years ago, Chris Collin still loves the outdoors in his home state of Maine! Working at Cabela’s, Chris is an expert on hunting and fishing, and he actively pursues both as a paraplegic today. See his adventures in Chapter 1.
- Wyoming native Ashlee Lundvall was injured in a farming accident, but she doesn’t let that stop her from being a huntress on wheels. Ashlee tours the country speaking about the accessible outdoors, and shares her own personal stories as a hunter in Chapter 2.
- New York native Michael Olsen broke his back when he fell down a stairwell that he was working in. He woke up to the realization that he was paralyzed, and decided soon after that regardless of how he rolled, he was getting back into the sports he loved! Today, Michael is a skilled adaptive athlete who enjoys Bowhunting, Wheelchair Racing, Skiing, Playing Basketball and Kayaking. See his story in Chapter 3.
- Professional archer Kevin Polish was paralyzed in a car wreck, but that doesn’t interfere with his competitive bow hunting and shooting. Kevin takes you on a bowfishing adventure in Chapter 4.
