Après avoir échappé au quotidien d'une enfance difficile en feuilletant de vieux numéros du magazine National Geographic, la jeune Amanda Lindhout décide de partir à son tour à la découverte du monde. Après de longs périples sac au dos en Amérique Latine, au Bangladesh, en Inde ou encore en Irak et en Afghanistan, elle débute une carrière de journaliste qui va la conduire en Somalie - " le pays le plus dangereux sur terre " -, où elle se fait enlever par un groupe d'hommes armés se réclamant d'une milice islamiste. Elle va rester prisonnière 460 jours, dans des conditions effroyables. (http://www.babelio.com/)
A house in the sky : a memoir by Amanda Lindhout( )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a child, Amanda Lindhout escaped a violent household by paging through issues of National Geographic and imagining herself in its exotic locales. Later in life, in war-ridden Afghanistan and Iraq she carved out a fledgling career as a television reporter. And then, in August 2008, she travelled to Somalia -?the most dangerous place on earth.? On her fourth day, she was abducted by a group of masked men along a dusty road. Held hostage for 460 days, Amanda converts to Islam as a survival tactic, receives?wife lessons? from one of her captors, and risks a daring escape. Moved between a series of abandoned houses in the desert, she survives on memory - every lush detail of the world she experienced in her life before captivity - and on strategy, fortitude, and hope. When she is most desperate, she visits a house in the sky, high above the tortured woman kept in chains in the dark

A house in the sky : a memoir of a kidnapping that changed everything by Amanda Lindhout( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When in 2008 a young, somewhat naive young Canadian freelance journalist travelled to Somalia, neither she, not anyone could have expected the trials that awaited her. Held at gunpoint in the capital Mogadishu in August 2008 by a group of teenage Islamic extremists, she and three of her crew were taken hostage. Captive for 460 days in horrifying conditions, tortured, chained in an animal shed, emaciated and almost losing the will to live, Amanda and her kidnap dominated the world's media. Finally rescued and disturbed by what had befallen her, Amanda struggled to cope. In her gripping, harrowing memoir of her time in captivity she details her terrifying ordeal but offers an uplifting and optimistic message - that courage and bravery saw one woman survive a journey into hell
