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.

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.
