In October 1972, Nando Parrado and his rugby club teammates were on a flight from Uruguay to Chile when their plane crashed into a mountain. Miraculously, many of the passengers survived but Nando's mother and sister died and he was unconscious for three days.

Stranded more than 11,000 feet up in the wilderness of the Andes, the survivors soon heard that the search for them had been called off - and realise the only food for miles around was the bodies of their dead friends ...

In a last desperate bid for safety, Nando and a teammate set off in search of help. They climbed 17,000-foot-high mountains, facing death at every step, but inspired by his love for his family Nando drove them on until, finally, 72 days after the crash, they found rescue.

Review:

His story is awesome. It is also enthralling, inspirational and an impressive testimony to one man's unquenchable instinct for survival and to the amazing resilience of the human spirit (Daily Mail)

Given up for dead after an air crash in the Andes in 1972, Nando Parrado not only survived but showed the strength and determination that saved his own life and that of his fifteen friends. Now he gives his own account of his ordeal -enthralling, enlightening, modest, and moving. An impressive testimony to what love can achieve (Piers Paul Read, author of Alive)

An utterly compelling read (Sunday Express)

Miracle in the Andes is an astonishing account of an unimaginable ordeal. In straightforward, staggeringly honest prose, Nando Parrado tells us what it took - and what it actually felt like - to survive high in the Andes 72 days after having been given up for dead. If you pick this book up, you will not be able to put it down (Jon Krakauer, author of Into Thin Air)

Fantastic - it's the most emotional book I've ever read (Sir Jackie Stewart)

This book not only reveals the lengths to which humans will go to survive, it makes you question your own strengths and weaknesses ... [This] dramatic story is moving, powerful and riveting (Daily Express)

Far and away the best book I've read this year is Miracle in the Andes by Nando Parrado, survivor and rescuer of the others who lived by desperate means through the horrific 1972 Andes plane crash (Publishing News)

Book Description:

The story of the 1972 Andes plane crash and rescue, made famous by Piers Paul Read in his book Alive, finally told by one of the heroes who saved his team-mates.
