Into The Mountains
The Extraordinary True Story Of Survival In The Andes And Its Aftermath
Sobre o livro
On December 22nd 1972, the world discovered that sixteen of the forty-five passengers of the Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 that crashed in the Andes seventy days earlier were still alive. Pedro Algorta has never spoken of his experience but he breaks his silence of over 40 years and gives a first hand account of one of the most incredible stories of human survival and team spirit. He delves into how he personally lived those seventy days in the cordillera, the day-to-day struggle to survive, and how with difficulty and strong team spirit the group created a survival machine in the mountains.
