Sites Unseen is no ordinary travel book. Laura Walker takes the reader on an extraordinary journey to four great American cities Boston, New York, Chicago, and San Francisco. See well-known landmarks like you've never seen them before as she shares her unique perspective as a blind woman travelling across the country. Meet her intrepid companions who guide Laura along her way, and soon discover there are "perks of blindness." Each chapter concludes with a few "Sites Unseen Tips", designed to humorously educate the reader about how to travel as a blind person, as well as with one. However, as the author herself said, "This isn't just a HOW-TO book; it's much more of an I-DID one." Sites Unseen is more than a travel log of hilarious adventures from a woman of limited sight. Laura takes special care to reveal new ways to see the world around us, and encourages the reader to experience life and all its offerings. Using her other senses, including humor and imagination, Laura engages with others and her surroundings head on sometimes literally.
