Summary
Nando Parrado regained consciousness to discover that the plane carrying his rugby team, as well as family members and supporters, had crashed deep in the Andes. Many were dead or dying, among them his own mother and sister. Those who remained were stranded on a glacier at nearly 12,000 feet, with no supplies and no means of summoning help. They struggled to endure freezing temperatures, deadly avalanches, and then the devastating news that the search for them had been called off. Nando's thoughts turned to his father, who he knew must be consumed with grief, and he resolved that he must get home or die trying--so an ordinary young man, with no disposition for leadership or heroism, led an expedition across 45 miles of frozen wilderness. Thirty years later, Nando provides a revealing look at life at the edge of death and a meditation on the limitless redemptive power of love.--From publisher description
