Test of Will by Warren Macdonald

Book Description

A Test of Will: One Man's Extraordinary Story of Survival is a stale of adventure, courage, and triumphs, but most importantly, it is an inspiring story about embracing life from a man who almost lost his. Warren Macdonald, a fit and experienced hiker, set out to make the gruelling climb to the top of Australia's spectacular Mount Bowen. But what had begun as a two-day adventure suddenly turned into a nightmare when MacDonald found himself lying in a creek bed, both his legs pinned by a giant boulder. While his companion made the solitary eight-hour journey to find help, the trapped hiker fought to stay alive. But this was only the beginning. "A Test of Will" has the suspense of a mystery, the pacing of a thriller, and the intimacy of the best inspirational literature. A gifted storyteller, MacDonald captures the terror and high drama of his hours alone in the wilderness. He also writes eloquently about his life both before and after the accident: his training as an adventure tour guide and his vow to continue his life in the outdoors even after both his legs are amputated. In 2003, MacDonald became the first doubt above-knee amputee to reach the summit of Africa's tallest peak, Mt Kilimanjaro
