really liked it
Read in September, 2010

The true survival story of a remarkable escape from an aeroplane crash high in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the US. Lauren Elder was determined to survive and despite the insanity of hallucinations she made it. The other two people in the plane were not so lucky, one dying of head injuries and the other of internal bleeding. I was surprised though that Lauren did not suspect Jay had internal bleeding – abdominal pain – cold limbs. Although even if she had she could have done nothing to help. She walked out of the mountains into the small desert town of Independence, after clambering down almost vertical cliffs, through snow, over rocks, down a dry waterfall. Then she had to try and convince a suspicious community she needed help.
The writing is fast moving, it’s a page turner.
