Description


"A must-read"

--Julie Dussliere, Chief of Paralympic Sport, U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee

Nineteen people from across the globe, ranging in age from twenty to seventy-plus, tell their stories of living and thriving in diverse fields -- in sport, the arts, medicine, business and more. With refreshing frankness, they share their successes along with their struggles -- grit is the one characteristic they all have in common. These are not stories of people overcoming disability -- they're stories of people accommodating disability while pursuing their dreams. Pure Grit shines a light on boundless possibility whatever the individual challenge.

"Pure Grit highlights the lived experience of remarkable individuals, who collectively demonstrate that growing up with a disability brings strength, perspective, and resilience."

--Dr. Cheri Blauwet, Assistant Professor of PM&R, Harvard Medical School

"An insightful collection of stories."

--Dr. Christine Imms, Apex Australia Chair of Neurodevelopment and Disability, University of Melbourne

"The stories in Pure Grit are a testament to human achievement no matter your ability. An extraordinary read."

--Casey Wasserman, Chairperson, Los Angeles 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games

How to Use Your Gift Cards Online

Hello! If you have a Flying Pig gift card (the cute plastic one with the pig and clouds), here's how to use it online:

Select the books you'd like to order. During the checkout process, you'll see a menu of options. Click on the little black arrow next to Store Gift Card pane:

Once you've expanded that menu item, you'll see a box to check Yes:

Once you click the checkbox Yes, you'll be asked to enter your gift card number. That's the number under the barcode on the back of your gift card. It might be a short or long number:

Enter it into the box below the words Enter Your Gift Card Number:

That's it! You will have to add a credit card as a backup in case your gift card doesn't cover the full amount of your purchase. **Because the website doesn't 'know' what amount is on your store gift card — the website and store system are separate entities — you will not see your gift card applied until your order leaves its Pending status and is Processing or Completed.**

If you received an Online Gift Code (NOT a physical card, but a string of numbers and letters emailed to you), please refer to your emailed gift to redeem those! They are applied instantly when you visit the website via the gift code email.

If you have further questions, please email us at flyingpigorders@gmail.com!
