Description
Recounts true stories of people who ended up miles from home, in a foreign land, in a situation beyond their worst nightmares. From travelers who ran afoul of the law and were put behind bars, to explorers taken hostage. Tells the tales of ordinary people who were locked up abroad and how they regained their freedom. There is a terrifying tale of kidnapping and murder by guerrillas in Africa; a dope deal in Kuwait that starts small and ends in hard time; an anniversary holiday in the Philippines that ends up a kidnapping by Muslim terrorists; and other stories of unsuspecting travelers who barely made it home.
