Miracle in the Andes: 72 days on the mountain and my long trek home
Author: Nando Parrado
The same story as Alive, told not from a 3rd person’s point of view, but from the perspective of a survivor, who was there the whole time struggling to keep alive.
The narrative is very powerful and passionate, taking us again to those 72 days in the Andes Mountains and, while Alive was a detailed recollection of the facts through extensive interviews with the survivors, this book focuses on Nando Parrado’s own experience, thoughts and feelings. It’s a story that shows us how love, faith and hope cannot be lost even in the most difficult and darkest moments.
Amazing book, capable of making you cry while reading it.
