One of the most extraordinary survival stories ever told-Aron Ralston's searing account of his six days trapped in one of the most remote spots in America, and how one inspired act of bravery brought him home. It started out as a simple hike in the Utah canyonlands on a warm Saturday afternoon. For Aron Ralston, a twenty-seven-year-old mountaineer and outdoorsman, a walk into the remote Blue John Canyon was a chance to get a break from a winter of solo climbing Colorado's highest and toughest peaks. He'd earned this weekend vacation, and though he met two charming women along the way, by early afternoon he finally found himself in his element: alone, with just the beauty of the natural world all around him. It was 2:41 P.M. Eight miles from his truck, in a deep and narrow slot canyon, Aron was climbing down off a wedged boulder when the rock suddenly, and terrifyingly, came loose. Before he could get out of the way, the falling stone pinned his right hand and wrist against the canyon wall. And so began six days of hell for Aron Ralston. With scant water and little food, no jacket for the painfully cold nights, and the terrible knowledge that he'd told no one where he was headed, he found himself facing a lingering death-trapped by an 800-pound boulder 100 feet down in the bottom of a canyon. As he eliminated his escape options one by one through the days, Aron faced the full horror of his predicament: By the time any possible search and rescue effort would begin, he'd most probably have died of dehydration, if a flash flood didn't drown him before that. What does one do in the face of almost certain death? Using the video camera from his pack, Aron began recording his grateful good-byes to his family and friends all over the country, thinking back over a life filled with adventure, and documenting a last will and testament with the hope that someone would find it. (For their part, his family and friends had instigated a major search for Aron, the amazing details of which are also documented here for the first time.) The knowledge of their love kept Aron Ralston alive, until a divine inspiration on Thursday morning solved the riddle of the boulder. Aron then committed the most extreme act imaginable to save himself. Between a Rock and a Hard Place-a brilliantly written, funny, honest, inspiring, and downright astonishing report from the line where death meets life-will surely take its place in the annals of classic adventure stories.… (mais)

I rated this book five starts. This is a rating of the book, and not the author. ( )

This is the true story of Aron Ralston who goes hiking in a remote part of the Utah desert without letting anyone know.
He gets his hand stuck between a big boulder and a canyon wall.
He tries to cut away at the wall, no luck his hand is already dead.
After a lot of deliberation he eventually amputates his hand.
He gets out the canyon and eventually gets rescued.

This book was far to long I found it extremely tedious in places.
So glad to finish it. ( )

Wow. A fascinating read through the physical and psychological impacts this event had on Aron during his accident. The stories intermingled with his entrapment in Blue John Canyon give us an interesting perspective on who he was, how intelligent he is, and his amazing level of experience in the wild. An amazing person to have made it through this terrible accident and continued to live life with his own values and adventures. ( )

Absolutely enthralling story, despite the fact that living in Colorado when this all happened I had followed every bit of it in the news. Well-written, but a bit meandering and preachy at bits - Aron Ralston is a good writer, but he's never pretended to aspire to be an author. Definitely a good book to read when you are on plane/train/automobile. ( )

But once your crew has rowed you past the Sirens

a choice of routes is yours. I cannot advise you

which to take, or lead you through it all--

you must decide for yourself--

but I can tell you the ways of either course.

On one side beetling cliffs shuoot up, and against them

pound the huge roaring breakers of blue-eyed Amphitrite--

The Clashing Rocks they're called by all the blissful gods.

No ship of men has ever approached and slipped past--

always some disaster--big timers and sailors' corpses

whirled away by the waves and lethal blasts of fire.

He was a better boatman than a cowboy, and a better cook than a train robber, but John Griffith, with the distinguishing mark of one blue eye and one brown eye, became a favored extra hand with the Wild Bunch, Butch Cassidy's gang, during his time in the Robbers Roost country of eastern Utah.
