Publisher's Summary

On October 12, 1972, a plane carrying a team of young rugby players crashed into the remote, snow-peaked Andes. Out of the 45 original passengers and crew, only 16 made it off the mountain alive. For 10 excruciating weeks, they suffered deprivations beyond imagining, confronting nature head-on at its most furious and inhospitable. And to survive, these men and women not only had to keep their faith; they had to make an impossible decision: Should they eat the flesh of their dead friends?
A remarkable story of endurance and determination, Alive is the dramatic best-selling account of one of the most harrowing quests for survival in modern times.

An inspiring story

It is get difficult for me to put into words how I felt about this book. This is a story of survival, a story of humanity, a story of faith. Ordinary people who find themselves in magnificent desolation. People who rise to the trials and tribulations set before them and do everything in their power to cling on to life.
