“For award-winning documentary photographer and writer Alison Wright, traveling in packed vehicles around Third World countries was just part of a day’s work — until the day her bus careened around a blind curve on a remote jungle road in Laos and collided head-on with a logging truck. Overcoming life-threatening injuries and extensive rehabilitation, Wright has achieved the unthinkable: climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and resuming her work as a photojournalist.”
