A crunching sound awakens a husband and wife sailing to Hawaii. Water starts to rush into their boat. They watch from the life raft as it sinks in only 15 minutes. That is the beginning of William and Simonne Butler’s 66-day trial of survival on the ocean. Iron Will: Surviving the Sea tells the story of five shipwrecks, and what it took for the survivors to endure until they were rescued. From surviving in an air pocket in a sunken ship at the bottom of the ocean, to the longest solo survival at sea, readers will learn how these individuals persevered against all odds.

M. Weber (author)

Publisher: Full Tilt Press ISBN: 9781629207810

A group of friends plan a trip to explore the Amazon rainforest. They have a map and some supplies, but the jungle is thick with trees. There are very few paths. The friends realize that they are lost and no one knows where to look for them. That is the beginning of Loic Pillois and Guilhem Nayral’s dangerous adventure. Iron Will: Surviving the Jungle tells five shocking stories of being lost in the rainforest. The survivors faced deadly animals, like jaguars and poisonous spiders, and encountered dangerous terrain, with heavy rains, flooding, and waterfalls. But readers will learn how they each made it out alive, with little more than an iron will.

A woman is getting her gear ready for a day of skiing. It’s a beautiful day at the lodge and she is near the lockers setting up her ski boots.

Iron Will: Surviving the Mountain retells 5 stories of adventure and survival on cold, dangerous mountains around the world. Some people lost limbs, and others lost fingers and toes to the cold. Even the most prepared can become the mountain’s victim. But somehow, with grit and determination, these survivors didn’t lose their lives.

Surviving the Desert

M. Weber (author)

Publisher: Full Tilt Press ISBN: 9781629207834

A man is driving through the Australian outback. His car breaks down, miles away from any help. He is surrounded by nothing but dry earth and bare trees, which offer very little shade. He knows he won’t make it if he tries to walk to a town. This is the beginning of Ricky Megee’s 71-day ordeal in the Australian wilderness. Iron Will: Surviving the Desert relates the experiences of five people alone in deserts around the world, and how they made it out alive. If the poisonous snakes and lizards don’t pose a major threat, the lack of water and high temperatures will. It takes a special will to survive to make it through such harsh a environment.
