Traveling Blind is a romance, a travel adventure, an emotional quest, and a deeply reflective description of coming to terms with lack of sight. It reveals the invisible work of navigating with a guide dog while learning to perceive the world in new ways. Although an intensely personal account, Traveling Blind is not simply memoir, for it extends beyond one person's experience to illuminate our understandings of vision informed by the academic fields of disability studies, feminist ethnography, and the study of human-­animal bonds. What does it mean to "travel blind"? What is it like to live in a world where things are not black and white so much as shades of gray? How does it feel to navigate through constantly changing imagery that requires changing inner perspectives as well? What can experiences of blindness tell us about sight? The book confronts these questions and more. In a series of beautifully textured stories, the author takes the reader on a fascinating journey as she . . .

Griffin seems to have taken to sightlessness with a kind of steely gusto, coming to the belief that "a life without sight was as interesting as a life with sight.­" He was determined to excel in arenas where sight would seem to be essential. He became a champion cattle breeder, for instance. He wrote novels, and fought a pornography charge on one all the way to the Supreme Court (he won). Although fascinated by monastic life, Griffin struggled with faith, and in 1951 converted to Catholicism. He learned Braille, walked fearlessly with a cane, achieving independence by sheer determination, aided by his parents and later his wife Elizabeth. On January 9, 1957, ten-­years blind and settled into his life as husband and father, he walked into his parents' house that afternoon and suddenly saw a flash of red, then a door "dancing at crazy angles.­" Soon after, the dazzling world of color returned: the . . .
