Between a Rock and a Hard Place by Aron Ralston
Between a Rock and a Hard Place is Aron Ralston's account of his hike gone wrong in the remote Blue John Canyon of Utah in April 2003. An avid outdoorsman and mountaineer, it was a simple 30-mile bike and hike for him, but he broke one of the cardinal rules: he didn't leave detailed instructions behind telling anyone where he was going. While climbing off a ledge over a boulder, the boulder suddenly shifted trapping his hand and wrist against the canyon wall. After 6 days trapped alone, he knew help would never find him in time, so he had to amputate his arm and walk to safety to save his life. Between a Rock and a Hard Place has received positive reviews with the Cleveland Plain Dealer saying, "Ralston's courage, his introspection in the face of death and his joyful embrace of life are reason enough to read his book."
