I have a Clay Blair book that is unpostable because it's binding is broken. But the book is very readable. The book is "Survive" , the incredible story of 16 men marooned in the Andes for 70 days, driven to callibalism to live. It was published in 1973. SBN 425024229. Order a book from my shelf and I will send it to you!

The back of the book reads...This is the definitive book on one of the most sensational epidsodes in the annals of human endurance. It is the gripping account, destined to be a classic, of the 16 young men who survived an air crash in the Andes, without food or fire in subfreezing temperatures over a mile above sealevel. Trapped in a hopelessly inaccessible area and facing death through starvation, they realized their only salvation was to eat the bodies of their companions killed in the crash. Ultimately 16 survived out of 45. This is a tribute to their will power, ingenuity, and religious faith - and the heroism of their two leaders who finally brought helicopter rescuers to the crash site after a 10 day journey through the highest mountain ranges in the Western Hemisphere.
