Holly FitzGerald | Ruthless River: Love and Survival By Raft on the Amazon's Relentless Madre De Dios

Join Holly FitzGerald for a reading and signing of her new memoir, Ruthless River: Love and Survival By Raft on the Amazon's Relentless Madre De Dios

Holly Conklin FitzGerald and her husband, Fitz, set out on a yearlong honeymoon adventure of a lifetime, backpacking around the world. Five months into the trip their plane crash-lands in Peru at a penal colony walled in by jungle, and their blissfully romantic journey turns into a terrifying nonstop labyrinth of escape and survival.

On a small, soon-ravaged raft through dangerous waters alive with deadly animals and fish, their only choice is to continue on, despite the rush of insects swarming them by day and predators at night. Without food or means of communication, the author and her husband make their way, fighting to conquer starvation and navigate the brute force of the river.
