I am alive : surviving the Andes plane crash( Visual )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout history, the most harrowing stories of human survival, like that of the Donner Party in the 1840s, have involved people whose only means of staying alive was to cannibalize the deceased around them. On Friday the 13th of October, 1972, just such a story began when a charter plane carrying 45 rugby team members crashed in the remote Andes Mountains. For 72 days, the world thought they were dead. But what 16 survivors endured was far worse than death
Miracle in the Andes : 72 days on the mountain and my long trek home by Nando Parrado( Book )

21 editions published between 2006 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nando Parrado regained consciousness to discover that the plane carrying his rugby team, as well as family members and supporters, had crashed deep in the Andes. Many were dead or dying, among them his own mother and sister. Those who remained were stranded on a glacier at nearly 12,000 feet, with no supplies and no means of summoning help. They struggled to endure freezing temperatures, deadly avalanches, and then the devastating news that the search for them had been called off. Nando's thoughts turned to his father, who he knew must be consumed with grief, and he resolved that he must get home or die trying--so an ordinary young man, with no disposition for leadership or heroism, led an expedition across 45 miles of frozen wilderness. Thirty years later, Nando provides a revealing look at life at the edge of death and a meditation on the limitless redemptive power of love.--From publisher description

Oktober 1972 besteigt Nando Parrado gemeinsam mit Freunden eine Maschine nach Santiago de Chile. Doch sie werden ihr Ziel nie erreichen, denn das Flugzeug stürzt fern jeglicher Zivilisation über den argentinischen Anden ab. Nando Parrado gehört zu den wenigen Überlebenden, aber er muss bald wie alle anderen begreifen, dass sie kaum eine Chance haben inmitten von Schnee und Eis. Bis Nando Parrado den kühnen Entschluss fasst, Hilfe zu holen. Zusammen mit einem Freund macht er sich auf den Weg durch das ewige Eis der Andengipfelá ... "Wenn Sie dieses Buch einmal in die Hand genommen haben, werden Sie es in einem Zug verschlingen." Jon Krakauer, Autor des Bestsellers "In eisige Höhen" "Eindrucksvoll beschreibt Parrado den Kampf ums Überleben zwischen Hoffnung und Verzweiflung. Das Buch dokumentiert eine grausige Zeit. Aber es geht auch im Liebe und Freundschaft und um die Frage, was wichtig ist im Leben." Straubinger Tagblatt "Das Drama der Überlebenden des Flugzeugabsturzes fasziniert und schockt seit über 30 Jahren. Jetzt erzählt der Held der Geschichte, wie es wirklich war." NZZ am Sonntag

Miraklet i Anderna by Nando Parrado( Recording )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in Swedish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nando Parrado ligger medvetslös i tre dagar innan han vaknar och upptäcker att planet som skulle ta hans rugbylag och deras familjer och fans till en uppvisningsmatch i Chile har störtat djupt inne i Anderna. Många är döda eller döende, bland dem hans egen mor och syster. De överlevande är strandade på en karg glaciär, de är utan mat och varma kläder, och utan någon möjlighet att tillkalla hjälp. De kämpar för att uthärda låga temperaturer, dödliga laviner och till sist den förödande nyheten att sökandet efter dem avblåsts. Den mat som finns tar snabbt slut och för att överleva tvingas de äta av de avlidnas kroppar. Tiden går och Nando bestämmer sig för att han måste försöka ta sig hem till sin far även om han riskerar sitt liv. Ett desperat beslut, men det är hans enda chans. Nando, en vanlig ung man, utan dragning åt vare sig ledarskap eller hjältemod, leder en expedition nedför Andernas förrädiska snötäckta sluttningar och genom mil av frusen vildmark för att skaffa hjälp. Trettio år efter katastrofen, som blivit berömd genom Piers Paul Reads bästsäljande bok Alive, berättar Nando sin egen historia med slående uppriktighet och känsla. Miraklet i Anderna är mer än en redogörelse för krashen och dess efterverkningar: det är en avslöjande inblick i en situation där livet bor granne med döden, och en betraktelse över kärlekens gränslösa och försonande makt. "En ny, gripande historia som kommer att tillfredställa äventyrsläsaren ... och en mångfasetterad reflektion over kamratskap, familj och kärlek."--Publishers Weekly [Elib]
