I finished the book a week ago but it still permeiates my consciousness every day. I talk about it, think about it and play it over and over in my mind time after time. The authors did an excellent job in putting the reader in the Sand Cave with Floyd Collins, in feeling his emotional roller coaster from the depths of dispair to the elation of thinking he was about to be rescued only to be abandoned again. There is more than enough blame to go around as to the failure of the would be rescurers and the authors do an excellent job of sorting through the facts they have to allow the reader to decide where the blame should lie. The author having actually gone down in Sand Cave some 50 years later answers some questions while raising just as many. It is at the same time, both a frustrating and an enriching book that you will be the better person for having read. I hope that the holder of the movie rights turns the book into a movie. Ill be on the front row.
