Between a Rock and a Hard Place, Paperback

Between a Rock and a Hard Place Paperback



On Saturday, 26 April 2003, Aron Ralston, a 27-year-old outdoorsman and adventurer, set off for a day's hike in the Utah canyons.

Eight miles from his truck, he found himself in the middle of a deep and remote canyon.

Then the unthinkable happened: a boulder shifted and snared his right arm against the canyon wall.

He was trapped, facing dehydration, starvation, hallucinations and hypothermia as night-time temperatures plummeted.

Five and a half days later, Aron Ralston finally came to the agonising conclusion that his only hope was to amputate his own arm and get himself to safety.

Miraculously, he survived. BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE is more than just an adventure story.

It is a brave, honest and above all inspiring account of one man's valiant effort to survive, and is destined to take its place among adventure classics such as TOUCHING THE VOID.
