Abstract:

Ingrid Betancourt tells the story of her captivity in the Colombian jungle, sharing powerful teachings of resilience, resistance, and faith. Born in Bogota, raised in France, Ingrid Betancourt gave up a life of comfort and safety to return to Colombia, a country that was being destroyed by terrorism, violence, fear and hopelessness. In 2002, while campaigning as a candidate in the Colombian presidential election, she was abducted by the FARC, a brutal terrorist guerilla organization. This is her deeply personal and moving account of her six-and-a-half year captivity. (Bestseller).
