The true story of an unlikely Montana scholar who discovers a vaccine saving thousands from a deadly virus.

Dead Ends to Somewhere

by Richard L. Ward

The story of a vaccine to save over 500,000 of the world’s children each year from the deadly virus rotavirus. Raised on a Montana ranch, Dick Ward was an unlikely candidate to become an eminent virologist. Yet, despite a less than stellar early academic career, the author’s innate competitive spirit helped him redirect what he learned through life to accomplish something deeply important. The myriad mishaps encountered during his search for a meaningful personal, religious and scientific life provide familiar, often funny, if not uncomfortable, touchstones to which each of us can relate.
