Description

In 2005, just two years before his untimely death in a plane crash, Steve Fossett completed the first solo, non-stop, non-refuelled circumnavigation of the world at the helm of the Virgin Atlantic GlobalFlyer. But what made someone like Steve give up a secure, wellpaid job for the romantic, yet dangerous world of the adventurer? His adventurous spirit has piqued the intrigue of his fellow competitors and sports aficionados, and attracted the notice of the world. Written just one year before his tragic death in 2007, in this dynamic autobiography Steve Fossett shares his inspirational stories in a personal, intimate voice and candidly recounts the milestones, challenges and victories that have made up his much-heralded career and paved the way to his 109 world records.show more
