Under An Afghan Sky: A Memoir Of Captivity

by Mellissa Fung

HarperCollins Publishers Ltd | April 25, 2011 | Hardcover

3.5 out of 5 rating. 2 Reviews

In October 2008, Mellissa Fung, a reporter for CBC''s The National, was leaving a refugee camp outside of Kabul when she was kidnapped by armed men. She was forced to hike for several hours through the mountains until they reached a village; there, the kidnappers pushed her towards a hole in the ground. "No," she said. "I am not going down there."

For more than a month, Fung lived in that hole, which was barely tall enough to stand up in, nursing her injuries, praying and writing in a notebook. Under an Afghan Sky is the gripping tale of Fung''s days in captivity, surviving on cookies and juice, from the "grab" to her eventual release.
