During a hike into the remote Utah canyonlands, Aron Ralston, a twenty-seven-year-old mountaineer and outdoorsman, found himself in his element with just the beauty of the natural world around him. Then, at 2:41 P.M., eight miles from his truck, in a deep and narrow slot canyon, an eight-hundred-pound boulder tumbled loose, pinning Aron's right hand and wrist against the canyon wall.

With scant water and food, no jacket for the cold nights, and the terrible knowledge that no one knew where he was, Aron faced the horror of his predicament: by the time any search and rescue effort would begin, he'd most assuredly be dead. Through six days of hell, eliminating his escape options one by one, Aron used his video camera to record his fateful goodbyes to family and friends...until a moment of stark clarity helped him to solve the riddle of the boulder - and commit one of the most extreme and desperate acts imaginable.

An honest, unexpectedly funny, and downright astonishing report from the line where death meets life, Between a Rock and a Hard Place has taken its place in the annals of classic adventure stories.
