Alive: The Story of the Andes Survivors
On October 12, 1972, a plane carrying a team of young rugby players crashed into the remote, snow-peaked Andes. Out of the forty-five original passengers and crew, only sixteen made it off the mountain alive. For ten excruciating weeks they suffered deprivations beyond imagining, confronting nature head-on at its most furious and inhospitable. And to survive, they were forced to do what would have once been unthinkable ...
This is their story -- one of the most astonishing true adventures of the twentieth century.

Riveting. I'm glad I finally got around to reading this (after it being on my to-read for quite some time). It baffles me how anyone can survive that long, that high up, and have that much determination to keep going on to find a way to survive. I loved every minute of this book. Read full review

This was my first "adult" book and I think my first non-fiction book. I read it when I was about 10 or 11 and I was home with strep throat. I couldn't believe it was a true story! Read full review
