DEEP DOWN DARK The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine, and the Miracle That Set Them Free

by | Read by Henry Leyva

Contemporary Culture • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

In a clear, unemotional voice, Henry Leyva narrates the story of the 33 miners who were trapped deep below the ground when the San Jose Mine collapsed in August 2010. Beginning with a history of mining in Copiapo, Chile, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Tobar recounts the events leading up to the mine’s collapse, the actions of the miners while trapped, the responses of their families aboveground, and the amazing rescue. Using subtle accents, Leyva draws listeners into the horror of miners trapped deep in the dark, winding tunnels. Switching effortlessly from English to Spanish and back, Leyva’s performance is riveting as scenes shift from inside to outside, from the tunnels to the mine offices. Each word builds the tension of the chilling disaster and the nail-biting rescue of men buried more than five miles below the surface.
