Holly FitzGerald

Holly FitzGerald has spent her career in psychotherapy and social work, but all along she had a story to tell. In 1973 she and her husband, Fitz, took a backpacking journey around the world that went horribly wrong. Five months in, their plane crashed in Peru and they built a raft to continue their journey down the Madre de Dios River. Faced with lightning storms, starvation, and a river filled with piranhas and alligators, the two tested their endurance and their marriage in their fight for survival. Over forty years later, FitzGerald has now recounted that experience in her debut book, Ruthless River: Love and Survival by Raft on the Amazon's Relentless Madre de Dios, an “absorbing tale of survival, love, and the generosity of people who helped save their lives,” according to Kirkus.
