After her plane crashes, a seventeen-year-old girl spends eleven days walking through the Peruvian jungle. Against all odds, with no food, shelter, or equipment, she gets out. A better equipped group of adult survivors of the same crash sits down and dies. What makes the difference? Through close analysis of case studies, author Laurence Gonzales describes the essence of a survivor and offers twelve "Rules of Survival." In the end, he finds, it is what's in your heart, not what's in your pack, that separates the living from the dead.
