Firth's Chasm: In the Blink of an Eye Paperback – June 24, 2020

by Travis James  (Author)

On a good day, any sane person could never imagine what it would feel like to be on a doomed crashing jetliner, much less live to tell the tale.
A combination of fiction and non-fiction, impossible to tell which, is the story of one man that lives to tell the experience as the jetliner starts breaking apart at the arctic circle above Canada.
Living through the experience is horrendous enough by itself, but when Travis James realizes that his life is thought to be forfeited in the wreckage and there is no help coming? He goes into survival mode as his damaged body wreaks havoc and keeps him trapped in the wilderness, keeping him from traveling south to safety.
A man of means, aching to return to his family that believes he is dead, is the driving force that pushes a man to the limits and beyond of his ability as the unfriendly terrain takes its toll.
When the push south finally begins, the trail is littered with agony and death as the civilized world refuses to acknowledge that there were any survivors or that he is anything other than a homeless man.
A disfigured Travis is constantly trying to decide whether to join his family, knowing he no longer looks quite the same, or to wander off into the sunset and save his family more grief.
Some names have been changed to protect the innocent.

Step aside John Maclean Die Hards hero has nothing over Travis James. A book hard to put down, a story of a basic family man with a will to survive and respect for human life that is missing from many people today. A fantastic journey of incredible physical suffering intertwined with a desire to do the right thing at any cost . A man with an unmatched love for the family he and his wife have created and his determination to return to them all, even in if pieces. Highly recommended

Firth’s Chasm is a book about surviving and determination coupled with integrity and love.
Travis has to overcome the impossible- a plane crash, injuries, the unforgiving elements, terrible people, and many doubters. He is constantly trying to prove himself and you can’t help to celebrate his wins. He is the guy you would always want in your corner.
His love of family and determination make him be able to do anything.
This is a book that is impossible to put down.
I hope there are more books to follow.

There are some books I will read over and over and this is one of them. Travis is the kind of man that every one would want to have around them in an emergency. The kind of man who will put his life on the line for a stranger and who will fight to survive no matter what he is faced with. I couldn’t put this down and found that I had to remind myself to breathe more than once. I was captured from the very beginning and felt that way til the end. I was left wanting more.

I really enjoyed this book, and highly would recommend it. I was gripped from the first chapter, and absorbed into the world the writer created. The journey of this one man through the Alaskan wilderness, and the challenges he endured was a story that will stay with me. And the villain of the piece still gives me nightmares!
Great read, looking forward to the authors next book.

This book is the middle book of a trilogy written by Travis James. Written in 6 weeks, 1-2 hours a night on an iPhone in notes, because this story is both fictional and non-fictional and is a recurring dream 2-4 nights a week. the author was told to put the dream together word for word and then read it over to eliminate the nightmares. That didn't work, so as others read the story, the author was encouraged to let others see the story so that people could appreciate that not all lives and paths that we humans chose to take end up even close to the way we initially hope.
