Book excerpt: Conquering Clouds is the story of pivotal moments and experiences throughout Ruth Wilson's life that led her to find the courage to pilot her hydrogen balloon over the snow-covered Swiss Alps at night to land in an Italian vineyard. At 75 this adventurer was definitely not swayed by her age. Her fight to survive a marlin fishing accident in the waters near Byron Bay is riveting. Ruth acknowledges that her rescue by a pod of dolphins is the reason she is alive today. "An inspirational and fascinating account of transcending multiple limitations to reach heights of bravery and success while keeping heart, love, and soul intact. Ruth has lived a remarkable life - it's time everyone knew about it." Carolinda Witt, award-winning author, 'Double Agent Celery MI5's Crooked Hero.' "Ruth Wilson is a courageous, adventurous and very determined woman. Her fascinating story is unputdownable..." Amanda Hampson, Bestselling author of 'The Olive Sisters' "Conquering Clouds is an unputdownable memoir of a remarkable woman. This book has it all - from impoverished childhood, death-defying adventures, failed romances and international fame as a balloonist, Ruth proves she conquered far more than clouds." - Libby Harkness ghostwriter of the best-selling memoir Turia Pitt's 'Everything to Live For'. "A glorious story of passion and pain written with honest truth and a simple reality that invites us mere mortal readers to indulge in a life to share her pain and feel her elated freedom of her spirit as this passionate woman writes in her words and with her raw talent to achieve another milestone of her courage and fight for freedom from her demons...one of the greats in the history of this country...A triumph!" Bianca, Indiebook reviewer.
