Overview

"Two Ends of a Leash: Unshackled" is the life story of author Grace D. Napier. Born blind, Grace came from a humble home in New Jersey. She began school when there were no special education programs for children who were blind. The teachers and principal regarded Grace as not only blind, but also mentally retarded. Because they misunderstood her disability, they ignored her, letting her sit idle at her desk every day.

Nevertheless, Grace had a hunger to learn. When her parents heard about a special education program in the next city, Grace met Miss Katharine Taylor, her new special education teacher. Grace's life was forever changed, thanks to the influence of this gifted teacher.

Now eighty-five, Grace resides in Colorado after a long career of teaching children and graduate students at three universities.

Grace began using Seeing Eye dog guides when she was seventeen years old. She is now working with her ninth dog, Esma (shown on the front cover). Read her fascinating and inspiring story.
