From my Twitter conversation with Christopher David Petersen:

@MyPassionsBooks to @ChrisPetersenTX – Finished Hidden Courage! Very good indeed! Informative, suspenseful, adventurous! Worried about Jack several times!

Isn’t it great to be able to converse with writers online while reading their books!

I couldn’t put down the last half of the book. Except once — had no choice, had other things that I needed to do — and I kept thinking about what was going to happen next in the book the whole time, until I got back to the book! Especially after Jack did a nosedive off of the mountain snowfield with no power! This was the area he landed his special little plane on the side of the mountain below Destination B. I was on the edge of my seat!

The hero, Jack Roberts, is very surprising at first. He seems like a very nice, mild mannered young man, but his hidden depth of courage to overcome his fear — which is of course the true meaning of courage — is truly amazing.

The original title for this book was Destination B: An Adventure in the Andes, but it was later changed to Hidden Courage. I really like Hidden Courage because it is so true.

I loved the story line. I was surprised just how much detailed information about climbing and flying the writer was able to get into the book and so conversationally! As well as lots of great information about the places that Jack visited along his journey, some of which he just flew over all along his trip from Connecticut in the Northeast of the United States across and down to Latin America and parts of South America to his destination B peak in The Andes in Peru.

I found out another interesting item when I looked up and was reading about The Andes. It is the longest continental mountain range in the world. See, he even got me to go looking stuff up too. I love research!

Christopher David Petersen included technical information about flying along the journey, and about climbing as he went up against the elements to reach Destination B, and I just drank it all in. I love techie stuff like that! Nothing like a great story to glue together wonderful and useful information about interesting subjects, and to get suspense and thriller at times to boot.

Thanks Chris! I will soon be reading Tomb of Atlantis too. Already purchased the Kindle Edition after reading the very interesting ancient historical first chapter at the end of Hidden Courage. Can’t wait to see where Jack Roberts will come in on that story!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am enjoying this book so far. Great detail on flying a small plane by yourself in interesting locations. I am at the point where Jack landed on the snowy flat area high in the mountains after flying about a week alone from the United States to The Andies in Peru.

Now, he he is looking up at the mountain he chose to climb two years ago…scary looking! There are two more books about jack, so I know he will be OK, but life sometimes gets in the way!

I hate to put it down, but very busy times right now and I need to do so. But, I will be able to read some on the Ferry…

OK, now that I have finished the book, here’s my review that I put on blog…
