Given up for dead after an air crash in the Andes in 1972, Nando Parrado not only survived but showed the strength and determination that saved his own life and that of his fifteen friends. Now he gives his own account of his ordeal--enthralling, enlightening, modest and moving. An impressive testimony to what love can achieve. --Piers Paul Read, author of "Alive"
"Unlike the cloud that obscured the mountainside, there is no haze enshrouding the meaning of life for Nando Parrado. It was in the love for his father that Nando found the motivation to survive the lethal circumstances that dominated his companions for over two months on a Chilean glacier. As he makes his unbelievable traverse of the Andes to find help for his few remaining teammates, Nando also demonstrates the depth of his courage, faith, and perseverance that help him later transform his losses into a source of inspiration for others. Connecting our struggles to his, we readers can use Nando as our beacon and see that there is a way out of our own personal Andes." --Aron Ralston, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Between a Rock and a Hard Place"
""Miracle in the Andes" is an astonishing account of an unimaginable ordeal. In straightforward, staggeringly honest prose, Nando Parrado tells us what it took--and what it actually felt like--to survive high in the Andes for 72 days after having been given up for dead. If you pick this book up, you will not be able to put it down." --Jon Krakauer, author of "Under the Banner of Heaven," "Into Thin Air," and "Into the Wild"

"Nando Parrado's haunting experience in the Andes--grippingly, honestly, and insightfully told--ranks with the most dramatic survival stories of the last two centuries." --Peter Stark, author of "Last Breath: The Limits of Adventure"
""Miracle in the Andes" is an extraordinary book. Everybody's philosophical hypotheticals were Nando Parrado's real life experiences. Would I survive an aircrash? Could I eat human flesh? Would a horrific and life-threatening event affect my religious beliefs? In the end, this account benefits enormously from the maturity that time allows. It is a beautifully written and moving story." --PeterHillary, author of "In the Ghost Country: A Lifetime Spent on the Edge"
