I have read this book so many times (not on nook) and every time I just can't believe these guys made it. Not only is it the most spellbinding book I have ever read, somehow I seem to get a lesson for my own life each time I read it. I wonder if mr. Parrado knew that his story would touch people in the way it does, or if he just thought some people might find it interesting. It is so much more than just an interesting book. I have found myself quoting him when I am having a rough time. And really, I am reluctant to call any day "rough" after hearing his story! I also love mr. Parrado humble attitude. Though he was one of the two who hiked across the Andes to find help, he gives everyone on the plane credit for his survival. He is also considerate in clearing up misconceptions of some of his fellow survivors who, in the book Alive, weren't presented in such a good light. If you have read or seen Alive, do not be fooled into thinking you know the story of these guys. This book is where you will hear, in Paul harvey's words, the rest of the story. If only some of the other survivors would write their version of what happened up there...

Excellent book. You will not be able to put it down. I only gave it 4 stars because the Nook version does not include any of the photos that are in the printed version. Nor does it include the artwork for the front cover. I had to search online to find photos of this amazing story. Shame on BN for cheaping out and selling a substandard Nook version. Better to buy the real book and get rid of your Nook.

Parrado brings you to the frigid horror of the wreckage of the Fairchild in the Andes and relives the 72 days of terror, determination, and hope. Not merely a grisly retelling; this book is in the end uplifting, no matter your circumstances.

I could not put this book down. Very sad story on what these boys had to go through to survive my heart and prayers go out to them. The movie ALIVE left outso much truth about these boys. Very good book I strongly recommend it.

"Miracle in the Andes" is a must read for those who appreciate a real life survival tragedy. I bought it as a gift for someone who love the book as well as the move. I was told that the story holds the readers attention from the start of page 1 to the finale pages of the book. When quick glancing at it I noticed a small section of pictures covering the incident.
