Overview

"The fires of transformation blaze in this superbly delightful portmanteau of a book. Brenda Smith undergoes a revolution in consciousness as she warily leaves the ordinary behind, steps off the comfort train, and careens into the strange and fantastic world of rafting crocodile-infested rivers and climbs high into the African sky. With her journey, the stitches that hold her tamed world together come undone, and an enthralled eyewitness to the wonders of the world emerges." Richard Bangs, one of Explorersweb's 100 greatest explorers of the last 100 years

Coerced by her boss and fellow rivers guides, Brenda Smith reluctantly embarks on a rafting trip through a vast Tanzanian game reserve. If she can survive twelve days on the remote jungle rivers, then she must scale Africa's tallest mountain. After twenty-eight years of a safe and predictable life, Brenda is terrified of what awaits her in these dangerous wildernesses.

She comes face to face with angry hippos, roaring lions and stealthy crocodiles, and struggles with the extremes of unbearable heat and hypothermia.

Despite the harsh external threats she conquers, her greatest challenge is a profound inner journey-a courageous transformation as she uncovers the internal source of her fears and discovers the personal strength to do anything.

Becoming Fearless is an inspirational true story that showcases what is possible when you step out of your comfort zone into the wild.

About the Author

Spellbound by wanderlust after working as a whitewater river guide, Brenda has lived, worked, or traveled in over forty countries. While overseas, Brenda pursued adventures on less-traveled roads through remote villages, collecting a raft of stories about her exploits. Now retired, she lives in Belfast, Maine, documenting cherished memories of her escapades in memoirs, essays and poems, often pounding the keyboard into the wee hours of the morning. When the ocean calls, she can be found rowing a dory in Belfast Harbor.
