Summary
A heart-pumping true story of the ultimate adventure - a couple survive a plane crash in the Amazon jungle only to end up clinging to a raft surrounded by death at every turn. Holly FitzGerald and her husband, Fitz, set out on a year-long honeymoon adventure of a lifetime, backpacking around the world. When their plane crash lands in the Amazon jungle their blissfully romantic journey turns into a terrifying ordeal. A makeshift raft quickly becomes their entire universe and their only hope of survival. Forced to battle the ruthless Madre de Dios River, every day becomes a life and death struggle. When a storm strands them in a swamp for weeks on end, their raft - a mere four logs - is the only thing that separates them from the piranha and other deadly predators surrounding them. They are literally marooned, starving and alone. All hope lost, Holly cradles Fitz, ready to face the inevitable. But miraculously they are rescued - just hours from death.This is an unforgettable story of how two people survived against all odds - and what they learned about love, trust and endurance
