Books I'm Reading

BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE

If you have ever felt you didn’t have many options or were in a difficult spot, you have got to read this book.

Ralston’s story is beyond amazing. I’m still shaking my head. Could I–could you–cut off your own arm to save your life? It’s hard to say isn’t it? I’ve been in some pretty sticky situations in the backcountry, but nothing–nothing–even remotely approached what Ralston experienced. Six days in a remote canyon with your right armed pinned by an immovable boulder, with enough supplies to last only for a day hike, and with hope dwindling even more as each hour, each day passed. But finally, with a do-or-die determination, Ralston summoned the courage to do the unthinkable–to free himself and live–by sawing off his arm with a dull knife. And after that incredible act, to have the strength to get himself out to help. Unbelievable!

If you don’t believe it, go buy the book for yourself.
