Summary:

Thomas Hargrove's Long March to Freedom is a record of Hargrove's eleven months as a hostage of Colombian guerrillas and was the basis for the recent movie hit Proof of Life that starred Meg Ryan, Russell Crowe, and David Morse. While the movie invented a fictitious romantic angle, Long March to Freedom is the actual journal Hargrove kept in captivity, and the listener gets a sense of the intense emotions and the tension caused by bouts of monotony broken by sudden brutality as well as the strength, wit, and personality through which Hargrove kept himself alive.
