Overview

True Spirit: The True Story of a 16-Year-Old Australian Who Sailed Solo, Nonstop, and Unassisted Around the World by Jessica Watson

True Spirit is Jessica Watson's own account of becoming, at just sixteen, the youngest person to ever sail solo, unassisted and non-stop around the globe. Now back in Australia after two hundred and ten harrowing days at sea in a 10 meter boat, teenage sailor and adventurer Jessica Watson takes readers beyond what has been revealed in the media and on her blog. She shares her preparation, how her parents came to terms with her decision, and a journey that included sleep deprivation, technical problems, gale-force winds, mountainous seas, and hazardous icebergs. She will also share how she managed to maintain composure against solitude that most of us can only imagine dealing with alone on a vast sea, with no land in sight and no help close at hand. This is a compelling, inspiring story of risk, guts, determination and achievement that will capture the hearts and mind of all those who admire an adventurous spirit. This eBook contains 19 embedded videos of  the amazing journey that Jessica filmed as she sailed around the world. Note: Download time is 4-6 minutes.
