Imagine being on the path of qualifying for the 1996 US Olympic Track and Field Team as a hurdler after becoming a 3-time All-American at the University of Arkansas to suffering a devastating injury that would lead to the loss of your leg.  Through faith and family, John Register overcame that devastating loss-- first to compete as a Paralympic swimmer in the 1996 Atlanta games and to win a Silver Medal as a long jumper in the 2000 Paralympic Games in Sydney Australia.  John’s story of “Hurdling Adversity” is an inspirational one he will share with World Footprints today.   

Then, a new book co-written by History Professor Victor Silverman called California: On the Road Histories, takes readers through the Golden State’s rich history and heritage in a way that no other book ever has.
