Summary
This is the account of the 2010 San Jose mine rescue in Chile, after one of the longest human entrapments in history. With his coveted "rescue pass," journalist Jonathan Franklin, who had lived 15 years in Chile, was permitted access far past the police perimeter. The miners were discovered alive 17 days after the collapse, but it took another 52 days before they were all rescued. For eight weeks, the author conducted interviews with families, rescue workers, the mine psychologist, drill operators, scientists, and the architects of the rescue operation, as well as the trapped men themselves, even as he assisted in getting supplies to them. In never-before-revealed detail, the author tells of the improbable survival of the miners, and chronicles what had to go right, an impossibly long list, to rescue them all alive.--From publisher description
