John Goddard, a career explorer and adventurer, experienced many thrillingclose calls with death during his adventurous life. As told in one of the mostmemorable stories in the original Chicken Soul for the Soul, when he wasa boy, John Goddard made a list of 127 things he would like to do in his life,from living with pygmies in Africa and headhunters in Borneo to exploring theworld's greatest rivers and highest peaks.

The Survivor captures some of these adventures as it follows his experiencesfrom boyhood, through his teen years and into adulthood. Each individualadventure is sure to thrill readers-from the exquisite details of exoticlocales, to the raw power of Pacific storms, to the hair-raising brushes withdeath-always emphasizing the danger and exhilaration intrinsic to theadventurous life. Unique to this book, though, is the author's reverence forlife and all living things, his honesty in admitting his own recklessness, hisawe and gratitude to the supreme force that miraculously allowed him to surviveeach of these close calls with death, and his ability to use his experiences andthe lessons he learned to set and achieve clear, meaningful goals. This greatread will entertain and inspire people to live their dreams.


I would buy this book again.
