about

In August 2010, thirty-three miners were buried alive,&nbsptwo thousand&nbspfeet below the surface of the earth. After&nbspseventeen tense days, just as hope was nearly gone, rescuers made contact with the men. Joy broke out around the world-all&nbspthirty-three men were alive! But it would be long weeks before they emerged from the mine.&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp What did the miners feel, trapped in the steamy darkness so far underground? What did they eat? How did they get along? And most important, how did they survive in those&nbspseventeen days when death lingered so near, and after, during the long wait for rescue?This amazing true story about problem-solving, community, and real-life heroes is made kid-friendly by veteran nonfiction writer Elaine Scott. It will inspire for years to come.
