On His Own Two Feet
The Life of Harold Granger
A biography by Elaine Cust
On His Own Two Feet is about an ordinary man who has lived an extraordinary life.
This book is about the small miracles that happen in everyday life.
When Harold Granger was sixteen, polio changed his life, forcing him to relearn how to walk. He fought his way back from being imprisoned in an iron lung to being able to stand and walk – on his own two feet.
In 1952, Harold bought his first school bus and began transporting students to the newly consolidated school in Riviere Qui Barre. From a single route, Harold’s Bus Lines expanded as the demand for school buses increased, and over the years this family business has provided daily transportation for the thousands of school children who attended Camilla School.
Over the past sixty years, Harold has become well known as a self-taught mechanic, an inventor, an innovator, a businessman, and a long-time lover of the Edsel.
The book follows Harold’s life as he grows up, faces the challenges of polio, builds his business, marries and raises a family, chronicling the ordinary events that make up his extraordinary life.
Elaine Cust, the author, spent her early years in Riviere Qui Barre, living just down the road from the Grangers and babysitting their family when Harold’s wife, Audrey, started driving her own bus route.
The book is available in both paper and audio format.
