About this title:
Synopsis:
On Saturday, 26 April 2003, Aron Ralston, a 27-year-old outdoorsman and adventurer, set off for a day's hike in the Utah canyons. Eight miles from his truck, he found himself in the middle of a deep and remote canyon. Then the unthinkable happened: a boulder shifted and snared his right arm against the canyon wall. He was trapped, facing dehydration, starvation, hallucinations and hypothermia as night-time temperatures plummeted. Five and a half days later, Aron Ralston finally came to the agonising conclusion that his only hope was to amputate his own arm and get himself to safety. Miraculously, he survived. BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE is more than just an adventure story. It is a brave, honest and above all inspiring account of one man's valiant effort to survive, and is destined to take its place among adventure classics such as TOUCHING THE VOID.

About the Author:
Aron Ralston, a native of the Midwest, retired from a career as a mechanical engineer at age twenty-six before moving to Aspen, Colorado. Since his accident, he has completed his unprecedented project to climb the fifty-nine Colorado peaks of more than 14,000 feet, alone, in winter. His first book, Between a Rock and a Hard Place, was a New York Times bestseller and was adapted into the major motion picture 127 Hours by Danny Boyle. Today, as a father of an infant daughter and four-year-old son, Aron lives in Boulder, Colorado. He continues to travel the world for both adventure and to share his story. Follow his journey at AronRalstonSpeaker.com.

Book Description: Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Pocket Books | Es sollte ein normaler Tagesausflug werden - ein wenig radfahren, tüchtig wandern, ein bißchen klettern. Doch plötzlich fand sich Aron Ralston, ehemaliger Ingenieur, nun Kletterer, Photograph und Wanderführer, in der Falle: eingeklemmt zwischen einem halbtonnenschweren Felsblock und einer Felswand. Ohne Hoffnung auf Hilfe, weil niemand wußte, wo er war. Nach fünfeinhalb Tagen ohne ein Signal der Hoffnung, mit wenig Wasser, noch weniger Essen, brütender Hitze und klirrender Kälte, stand Ralston vor der schrecklichen Entscheidung: Er kann nur überleben, wenn er sich selbst den eingeklemmten Arm amputiert. Das Unvorstellbare gelingt. Er kann sich noch eine 17 Meter hohe Felswand abseilen und mehrere Kilometer laufen, bis ihn die Rettungsteams finden. Selten zuvor hat ein junger Mensch so eindringlich den Zustand zwischen Leben und Tod beschrieben: so ehrlich, so erschütternd, so humorvoll, so mutmachend. Dieses Buch ist schon jetzt ein Klassiker der Survival-Literatur. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 285 gr | 352 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780743495806
