Synopsis
These stories are full of suffering: From the savagery of the Donner Party snowbound in the Sierra Nevada mountains during the winter of 1846, to the extreme hunger and brutal cold endured by Ernest Shackleton's support team in Antarctica in 1915. Such suffering may be hard to listen to, but it engages us, offering glimpses of something essential. When the most basic needs become paramount, some people can achieve a kind of clarity. This clarity in turn can lead to acts of compassion and genuine courage.

Most of the accounts in this audiobook exist because people endured their miserable circumstances: They survived. Their stories testify to human beings' ingenuity and strength in the face of pain or the prospect of death. If nothing else, they remind us that while suffering is part of life, so is deliverance.
