about this item

On December 22nd 1972, the world discovered that sixteen of the forty-five passengers of the Uruguayan Air Force plane that had crashed in the Andes seventy days earlier, were still alive. Nobody could quite overcome their astonishment. Without food, living in extreme temperatures, facing all kinds of adversity, and with no hope of a rescue, they did the unimaginable in order to survive. The author of 'The mountains are still there,' Pedro Algorta has never spoken of his experience in the Andes, because what happened on the mountain was, for him, a private matter. In this book he breaks his silence of over 40 years and gives a first-hand account of one of the most incredible stories of human survival and team spirit. With this book Pedro delves into how he personally lived those seventy days in the cordillera, the day-to-day struggle to survive, and how with difficulty, a lot of hard work and strong team spirit the group created a survival machine in the mountains.
