The Story of the Andes Survivors

Ranked #30 in Survival, Ranked #43 in Airsee more rankings.

On October 12, 1972, a plane carrying a team of young rugby players crashed into the remote, snow-peaked Andes. Out of the forty-five original passengers and crew, only sixteen made it off the mountain alive. For ten excruciating weeks they suffered deprivations beyond imagining, confronting nature head-on at its most furious and inhospitable. And to survive, they were forced to do what would have once been unthinkable...

This is their story—one of the most astonishing true adventures of the twentieth century.
