Summary
Relates the experiences of the thirty-three men who endured entrapment beneath thousands of feet of rock for a record-breaking sixty-nine days during the San José mine collapse outside of Copiapó, Chile, in August 2010
Summary
In August 2010, a cave-in at a copper and gold mine in northern Chile trapped 33 miners and technical workers deep underground in the dark. On the surface, rescuers scrambled and families anxiously waited for 69 days. Drawing on exclusive interviews with the miners and their families, journalist Héctor Tobar vividly describes the collapse, the men's relationships, their emotional and spiritual responses, and their post-rescue readjustment to life. He depicts the family members' feelings and opinions, the response of the international media, and details of the rescue effort. This gripping account provides an informative edge-of-the seat reading experience about the historic disaster and rescue operation. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
