<p><strong><em>Nerves of Steel</em></strong><strong> is the captivating true story of Tammie Jo Shults's remarkable life--from growing up the daughter of a humble rancher, 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.</strong></p> <p>Tammie Jo Shults has spent her entire life loving the skies.
