Miracle in the Andes 72 Days on the Mountain and My Long Trek HomeIn the first hours there was nothing no fear or sadness just a black and perfect silence Nando Parrado was unconscious for three days before he woke to discover that the plane carrying his rugby team as well as their family members and supporters to an exhibition game in Chile had crashed somewhere deep in the Andes He soon learned that many were dead or dying among them his own mother and sister Those who remained were stranded on a lifeless glacier at nearly 12000 feet above sea level 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 As time passed and Nando's thoughts turned increasingly to his father who he knew must be consumed with grief Nando resolved that he must get home or die trying He would challenge the Andes even though he was certain the effort would kill him telling himself that even if he failed he would die that much closer to his father It was a desperate decision but it was also his only chance So Nando an ordinary young man with no disposition for leadership or heroism led an expedition up the treacherous slopes of a snow capped mountain and across forty five miles of frozen wilderness in an attempt to find help Thirty years after the disaster Nando tells his story with remarkable candor and depth of feeling Miracle in the Andes a first person account of the crash and its aftermath isthan a riveting tale of true life adventure it is a revealing look at life at the edge of death and a meditation on the limitless redemptive power of love I'm familiar with the story of the plane crash in the Andes involving a young rugby team from Uruguay on their way to a match in Chile I've seen a feature film and a documentary about events Both were challenging to watch but I had no idea about the real extent of this tragedyThe author was a survivor and after some years he's written this considered well balanced although often harrowing account of the crash and its aftermath There's barely a spare word in a narrative which details deprivation and endurance beyond understanding Ingenuity resourcefulness courage and occasional divine intervention both good and bad all played a part in the aftermath of the crash This is one of the most profoundly moving books I've ever read Nando Parrado writes with warmth and understanding about his friends and team mates He writes with insight compassion and self awareness which brings these mainly young men vividly to life That anyone survived the actual crash may be considered a miracle but to follow the story of the next weeks as a group of survivors struggle to live is a really emotional ride It's impossible to imagine being stranded thousands of feet up in the Andes wearing light summer clothing without food or heat and no experience of snow which was waist deep Their physical strength depleted through starvation and dehydration to say nothing of the injuries sustained during the crash they had to draw on every ounce of mental and spiritual strength in order to surviveThe writing is always measured which makes it all the powerful and it's a very thought provoking account which leaves the reader reflecting on a number of moral issues It certainly puts every day to day gripe about some misfortune or other into perspective It's a book I'd recommend to everyone
