Description
Paralyzed from the chest down when she was thrown from a horse, Liz might have sunk into a twilight of self pity but for her indomitable spirit. She met and eventually married Pete Fordred, who had been paralyzed in a car accident. With no prospects in the beleaguered Rhodesia of 1980, they formed a crazy plan: to build a boat and sail around the world. That they were broke, disabled, had never sailed, and lived 1,000 miles from the ocean in a country where boat equipment was almost impossible to obtain wouldn't stop them.

An Ocean to Cross is a tale of courage, self-empowerment, and ultimate triumph. Liz Fordred's most eloquent answers to a storm of nay-saying were her seemingly inexhaustible reservoirs of fortitude and optimism, and an amazing marriage that grew stronger with each new obstacle. This good-humored and forthright narrative tells the inspiring story of how she and Pete worked tirelessly together to rebuild their lives against all odds, and ultimately sailed to a new life in America.
