Publisher's Summary

Written and read by Jessica Watson, this is the story of a remarkable girl who followed her dream and conquered the world.
There is something different about adventurers, about the way their minds work. They look at the world as a place of challenges, and though they know what fear is, they refuse to be hindered by it.
True Spirit is Jessica's story, and in it she will detail her preparation, her journey and her battle with sleep deprivation, gale-force winds, mountainous seas, natural hazards like whales and icebergs and holding firm against the solitude that most of us can only imagine dealing with, alone on a vast sea with no land to be seen and no help close at hand.
The name Jessica Watson will soon be part of sailing history. She will join Jesse Martin and Kay Cottee as someone all Australians can be inspired by. Jessica Watson is a dreamer who dares to do.

Great adventure told with passion

Would you listen to True Spirit again? Why?

There as so many sections that make you grin, nod your head and think I should take a lesson from that.

What did you like best about this story?

The simplicity with which Jessica told her story, raw and gutsy.

Inside a story about sailing is an important lesson about life. Work hard, never give up. Happy that the story is told by Jessica.
