MIRACLE IN THE ANDES 72 Days on the Mountain and My Long Trek Home

by | Read by Josh Davis

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2006

The author, a Uruguayan rugby player, survived a plane crash in the Andes. His skull was smashed, and he lay in a coma for two days before waking to a freezing hell. Yet he summoned the courage and strength to be one of a small group of survivors who walked out of the mountains. (The story was the basis of the 1970s' bestseller ALIVE.) Parrado's storytelling is long-winded at times but still worthwhile listening. His prose paints vivid pictures, and reader Josh Davis keeps a strong pace. Audio quality is outstanding. The author reads the prologue and epilogue, and the set contains a bonus interview with Parrado. T.F. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
