Damn Fine Read. They Lived On Human Flesh, 1973


On October 13, 1972, an airplane carrying Uruguayan rugby players and their families to a match in Chile crashed into a mountainside and disintigrated. Miraculously, 26 of the 45 passengers and crew survived the accident--only to face slow death by freezing or starvation in the vast rock-and-ice wilderness of the Andes.

For days they stayed alive through resourcefulness, heroism, and devout faith in God. But with their strength and supplies running out, they had to make a terrible decision. As the weeks passed and they waited for a rescue that might never come, They Lived On Human Flesh.
