For Amanda Lindhout, it began as a dream; cocktail waitress tips squirreled away to finally fulfill her National Geographic fantasies. Eventually, those quarters and crumbled dollars translated into trips to Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Her relatively carefree vagabonding took on a decidedly different tone when, while traveling in war-torn Somalia, she was abducted by masked fundamentalist Islamic insurgents. Held captive for fifteen months, she survived her ordeal with both practical strategies and imaginative flights, including the one described in the title. In hardcover, this reader favorite hit bestseller lists on both coasts; now in paperback and NOOK Book, it might do the same.
