About the Book

When she is eighteen, Hanneke Boot discovers that painting with her mouth is easier for her than painting with her hands. Born with a muscle disease, she’s experienced a host of challenges. But she’s found her calling in art and paints everything: views, landscapes, mills, and portraits. In Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, she shares her story. Boot narrates how being born with a physical disability guarantees you will run into obstacles for life. But she tells how those obstacles become challenges, and they can be overcome through humor and by exploiting your strongest talent. Beginning in January of 2015 and running through June of 2018, Boot documents her feelings, thoughts, and activities in a diary format which she shares in Ain’t No Mountain High Enough. It offers insight into one woman’s challenges with a disability while giving inspiration to others facing the same difficulties.
