An August explosion in a remote Chilean desert region made headlines far and wide because 33 innocent miners were trapped far beneath the surface. For the next 69 days, the world watched as rescuers attempted to free the men and the miners themselves coped with fear, depression, and meager food supplies. (Each man was allotted the equivalent of one teaspoon of canned tuna each day.) This account by a noted Chilean journalist recaptures the disaster, the aftermath, and the miner's triumphant release.
