Life on   Cripple Creek
  Dean Kramer

Most of the books and other informative   material currently available on MS miss the emotional mark. People with MS are   looking for material that speaks to them, that tells them the truth about things,   and that offers them the opportunity to alternately feel sadness and laugh out   loud. MS is their reality and, often, they aren"t given the proper tools   to befriend it. Accompany Dean through her failures and victories. Experience   life through her eyes. Many books convey the struggles of living with a life-changing   disability. But Life on Cripple Creek goes further, showing that with inner   strength and a sense of humor the intrinsic land mines one encounters with this   disease need not be devastating. With beauty and joy, laughter and tears, Dean   brings us Life on Cripple Creek.

Life on Cripple   Creek not only conveys the struggles, but also the strength and humor an individual   discovers within themselves as they deal with a life-changing disability.

The essays offer an honest, enlightening   - all the while involving and entertaining - glimpse into what is   it like to live with a disability.


About The   Author

Dean Kramer

When   Dean Kramer could find only one or two books describing the ongoing, everyday   lives of ordinary people living with Multiple Sclerosis, she began writing essays   about her own experiences. She now writes a monthly column for MSWorld, Inc.   called "Life on Cripple Creek," and has been widely published as   an essayist. She has received journalistic recognition for her sensitive essays   on the plight of Haitian farm workers in Pennsylvania, has written lyrics for   an Off-Broadway musical on the life of Will Rogers, written articles about the   training of dogs who assist the disabled, and has written for both commercial   and documentary film. Her work on the documentary film "Me" earned   her a Golden Eagle award from the American Cine Society. Life on Cripple Creek  is her first collection of essays.
