Gary Farmer - Hopping Around The World
Wet Zebra’s newest writer is a true original, with a truly original, highly engaging submission.
Gary Farmer’s Hopping Around the World is an account of an unusual adventure – certainly, in his own words, one with no danger of odd socks or forgetting how to put your best foot forward. From Paralympic Games to wrestling rings, via mountains and deserts, Gary Farmer has truly hopped around the world.
'When I was approached about maybe writing a book - about my life of all things - I was astonished,' he says. 'I didn't know If there was enough to talk about. However, sitting down to pictures of the adventures I have been on, it now makes sense. I have been very fortunate to do so much. My hard work has paid off in various pursuits and endeavours.
So follow me as I go back over my journey so far.'
