Ad description

On Sunday April 27, 2003, Aron Ralston, a 27-year old outdoorsman, set off for a day’s hiking in the Utah canyons. Dressed in a t-shirt and shorts, and with a single bottle of water, he figured he’d hike for a few hours, see the hieroglyphs left by Native Americans on canyon walls that so intrigued him, and then head back to his regular life as a tyro tour guide. After years of climbing every mountain imaginable, during which he’d once spent 36 hours being stalked by a bear, and surviving a major avalanche, this Sunday jaunt was a piece of cake for Aron—he didn’t even bother to tell anyone where he was going.40 miles from the nearest paved road, Aron found himself in the middle of a northwest-southeast canyon, on top of an 800-pound boulder. Using impeccable technique, he slid down and off of the boulder as he had done so many times before—but for no apparent reason, as he was about to be clear, the boulder shifted, and trapped his right hand against the canyon wall. No one knew where he was; he had little water; he wasn’t dressed correctly; and the boulder wasn’t going anywhere.Aron Ralston was faced with three reasonable choices: first, that someone would happen by him (extremely unlikely) and summon help; second, that he could chip away at the rock and free himself; or third, that he could use some of the ropes and pulleys he carried to mechanically move the boulder. And so began a terrifying, and life-altering ordeal. Aron Ralston was trapped for five full days in the canyon: hypothermic at night, de-hydrated and hallucinating by day; he took video film of himself, and digital photos; he thought back to the life he’d led, and the people he cared so much about; he stretched out a foot at 9:04am every morning to get the first rays of a weak sun to get his biorhythms going once again; and he watched as a raven flew over him each morning. Each morning, that is, until May 1, when he finally faced the most terrible decision of his life: he knew that there was, indeed, a fourth option, and that morning Aron Ralston broke the bones in his wrist by snapping them against the boulder, hacked through the skin, and finally succeeded in amputating his right hand and wrist.The ordeal, however, was only beginning. He still faced a 60-foot rappell to freedom, and a walk of several hours back to his car—along the way, he miraculously met a family of Dutch hikers, and with his arms tourniqued, and blood-loss almost critical, they heard above them the whir of helicopter blades; just in time, Aron was rescued and rushed to hospital.Since that day, Aron has had a remarkable recovery. He is back out on the mountains, with an artificial limb; he speaks to select groups on his ordeal and rescue; and amazingly, he is upbeat, positive, and an inspiration to all who meet him. This is the account of those five days; of the years that led up to them; and where he goes from here. Combining the power of a Jon Krakauer book with a stunning survival tale in the vein of Icebound, this is narrative non-fiction at its most compelling.
