's review

really liked it

This was short but sweet! There's little mystery to this book as the title explains the outcome - it was a fast-paced, epic recounting of how Lauren Elder walked to safety after an aeroplane crash in the heart of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in California.

Clad in only fashionable clothes, with nothing in the way of outdoor gear to aid her, this is a heroic tale of how, using only her wits and her stamina, this young woman manages to survive. As an outdoor enthusiast and woman, this story was inspiring and will stick with me for a very long time to come.

If you have a couple of hours to spare then I urge you to give this a go - the story may be set many years ago but there is so much to take away from it, even today.
