Acknowledged throughout the world as one of the most moving and inspiring stories of survival ever written. In 1973, sixteen Uruguayan boys, most of them teenagers, were rescued after surviving for ten weeks in the snowy wastes of the high Andes after their plane crashed. This is the story of their survival, told with compassion, understanding, and restraint.

From the Inside Flap:

They overcame the impossible by doing the unthinkable?

On 13th October 1972, a plane chartered by an amateur rugby team on their way to Santiago in Chile crashed in the Andes. Some of the forty-five passengers and crew were killed on impact, others seriously injured. Weakened by starvation, extreme cold, and by the awful knowledge that the search had been called off, the survivors had to face the inescapable truth: to live, they must eat the flesh of their dead companions.
