"Two best friends, 500 miles, one wheelchair, and the challenge of a lifetime. Friendship takes on new meaning in this true story of Justin and Patrick, born less than two days apart in the same hospital. Best friends their whole lives, they grew up together, went to school together, and were best man in each other's weddings. When Justin was diagnosed with a neuromuscular disease that robbed him of the use of his arms and legs, Patrick was there, helping to feed and care for him in ways he'd never imagined. Determined to live life to the fullest, the friends refused to give into despair or let physical limitations control what was possible for Justin. So when Justin heard about the Camino de Santiago, a 500-mile trek through Spain, he wondered aloud to Patrick whether the two of them could ever do it. Patrick's immediate response was: "I'll push you." I'll Push You is the real-life story of this incredible journey. A travel adventure full of love, humor, and spiritual truth, it exemplifies what every friendship is meant to be and shows what it means to never find yourself alone. You'll discover how love and faith can push past all limits--and make us the best versions of ourselves''- -

It was a good book. At times though I found it very repetitive. I also found myself at times thinking they did not need to quite be so elaborate on their friendships - the acts of their love and friendship was very apparent and more moving by reading about the acts than having to spell it out. I recommend this book it is a very inspiring read!

This was an inspiring true story of a lifelong friendship between two men. They take this incredible journey together along the El Camino. The walking the El Camino in itself is an accomplishment, however, one is being pushed in a wheelchair.

Yet another story about the journey Camino de Santiago. This trek made famous by the movie The Way has attract countless individuals to make the 500 mile spiritual pilgrimage across Spain. However, you won't read another account of this journey that is quite like the one told by authors and lifetime friends Patrick Gray and Justin Skeesuck. Read the book. And then watch the documentary that shows video footage of the journey. Be inspired!
