In the Himalayan winter, without food or shelter, a human being is not expected to live longer than a week. James Scott lasted 43 days.

He survived cold, hunger, isolation and despair, hanging on the dwindling hope that a search team might find him, or that he could crawl out when the snow thawed. He should never have made it out of the mountains alive.

Conflict of interest: I actually have the pleasure of knowing the author James though I did not know him when he endured this incredible ordeal of 43 days without food in freezing conditions.

Co-written very naturally with his sister Joanne who persevered in looking for her brother when nearly all had given him up for dead. An amazing journey of faith, hope and endurance in unimaginable circumstances. Also a damning indictment of the Australian media and public for doubting his story. I know for

This is certainly an amazing story of how James Scott survived. I think it is a real pity that so many have accused him of that his story is not true.
It was also revealing about how much of a pain the media can be.. and don't get me started on the the psychic rubbish!

Bit of a mixed bag this book. Great story, drags in places too.

Moral of the story - Take care out there in the himalayas, get good shoes stick together and stay safe.
