On February 19, 2007, SSG Shilo Harris was patrolling an infamous southern Iraqi roadway when his Humvee was struck by an IED. Moments later, three members of his crew were dead and Shilo had sustained severe injuries that would alter the course of his life. For forty-eight days he lay trapped in a medically induced coma as his wife, unable to ease his suffering, had to come to grips with a man utterly changed.
Through more than sixty surgeries, countless hard decisions, and the unwavering devotion of the wife who would not leave his side, Shilo discovered that he was being reshaped--within and without--into the person he was meant to be all along. His inspiring story will move you and motivate you to live boldly in the face of fear and trust God to pull you through the toughest of times--no matter what. Hardcover.

This is the story of a young boy raised in a small Texas town under the heavy yoke of a father struggling with the personal aftermath of his service in Vietnam. This is the story of the first human being to participate in extracellular stem cell regeneration to regrow lost body parts. This is the story of the survivor not only of an explosion but of more than sixty surgeries to restore both form and function to his broken body. This is the story of the wife who stood by his side, made hard decisions, and continues to support her husband through his struggles with PTSD.
This is the story of a God who reshapes us into the people he wants us to be. And in that way, this is the story of all of us.
Anyone whose life has been touched by tragedy and loss, especially military families dealing with PTSD, TBI, amputations, and other realities of wartime service, will find strength, encouragement, and inspiration in this moving memoir.

Burley Gwaltney4 Stars Out Of 5A Good BiographyOctober 26, 2014Burley GwaltneySteel Will is a biography, and as such its a better quality than many of the Christian books Ive read recently. Its not busy making some of the pretentious connections that most inspirational christian reading does these days. Its worth a read, especially if youre interested in the military, or the process of dealing with hard circumstances (Harris was in a humvee in Iraq and was struck by an IED which resulted in severe injuries, and a long road to recovery.) I received a free copy from baker in exchange for my review.

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Incredible! Steel Will is so appropriately namedafter the many difficult ordeals, anguish and suffering endured, a strong will, his committed family and faith in God is what brought him through it all. As a true role model, a team player, a compassionate educator, a father and a husband, Shilo Harris is also a genuine American. Though raised by his father for the service, his success in the military came from pure heart. Well written from a story obviously well lived and told, Steel Will will bring you to tears as well as make you smile. Thank-you Shiloto both you and your family!!
