Reviews

"[Shaben] vividly recreates how these four total strangers managed to survive the tragedy."--New York Post
"[T]his is a complex, chilling narrative rendered with depth and precision, engaged in both its characters and the larger social moment... A worthy addition to the canon of extreme-survival nonfiction."--Kirkus
"A story that has haunted Vancouver-based writer Carol Shaben, Larry's daughter, since it happened... She was able to use [Archambault's] story to take readers along on that stormy night, to the side of a mountain where four men struggled to stay alive overnight alongside the six others who had died."--Tracy Sherlock, Vancouver Sun
"As a concept, it doesn't get much better [than this]... Into the Abyss is in the best traditions of true-life journalism and grips from beginning to end."--Iain Finlayson, The Times
"Electrifying...Shaben's riveting narrative is filled with heart and the story is well told."--Publishers Weekly
"Gripping and emotionally affecting. . . a deep and satisfying book."--Washington Post
"The gripping account . . . is ultimately about the survivors, telling the story in scouring yet respectful detail of the four men who limped away from the fatal crash."--Fish Griwkowsky, Edmonton Journal
"With Into the Abyss Carol Shaben gives us an astonishing true story of catastrophe and redemption. Shaben writes from the inside out, as in the best non-fiction, creating a nuanced and tightly braided portrait of four men and their shared trauma that is by turns terrifying and deeply humane. Every line in this story rings true."--John Vaillant, author of The Tiger
