Description

"[A] remarkable story....An honest and harrowing memoir of a life-changing ordeal." —Arizona Republic

The spellbinding New York Times bestseller, Out of Captivity is the amazing true story of Marc Gonsalves, Tom Howes, and Keith Stansell, three American civilian contractors who were held hostage by the FARC rebel group in Colombia for five and a half years. Written with Gary Brozek, this book is an astonishing tale of unbelievable hardship and indomitable will—an "action-packed" (Time magazine) real-life adventure that stands with Alive by Piers Paul Read, Norman Ollestad's Crazy for the Storm, and other classic true stories of survival.
