THE EXTRAORDINARY ("Booklist") #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER THE HARROWING ("The Washington Post") SURVIVOR S MEMOIR YOU WILL NEVER FORGET
Aron Ralston, an experienced twenty-seven-year-old outdoorsman, was on a day s solitary hike through a remote and narrow Utah canyon when he dislodged an eight-hundred- pound boulder that crushed his right hand and wrist against the canyon wall.

With scant water and food, and a cheap pocketknife his only tool, he eliminated his options one by one. On the fifth night, wracked by delirium and uncontrollable shivers, Aron scratched his epitaph into the rock wall, certain he would not see daylight.
Yet with the new morning came an epiphany: if he could use the rock s vise-like hold to break his arm bones, his blunted pocketknife could serve as a surgeon s blade. . . .
