NERVES OF STEEL by Tammie Jo Shults

We all know the tragic story of the Southwest flight that took the life of Albuquerque’s Jennifer Riordan. Tammie Jo Shults was the captain of that flight. Nerves of Steel is the inspiring true story of her life—from growing up the daughter of a rancher in New Mexico, to breaking through gender barriers as one of the Navy’s first female F/A-18 Hornet pilots, to safely landing the severely crippled Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 and helping save the lives of 148 people. Not originally scheduled for the flight, there is no doubt God had prepared her and placed her right where she needed to be that day. Nerves of Steel is a captivating story of faith, courage, and perseverance.
