Between a Rock and a Hard Place

"Between a Rock and a Hard Place" by Aron Ralston

This is the incredible story of a man who was hiking alone and got his hand caught by a boulder.  In order to save himself he had to amputate his hand.  He survived four days trapped with little food and water.  This was an accident, he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Now I will say that Aron obviously had an adventursome spirit and pushed the limits as far as he could, sometimes too far.  He lived many life and death situations.  He had incredible know how, skill and mind set to be able to keep his head and get himself out of the situation.  It is unbelieveable what he had to do to survive and yet he was able to do it and get himself to help.  Truly the hand of God was watching over him.  He has no regrets and with his prosthetic hand, continues to do all the outdoor adventures that he did before.  He is an inspiration that a disability should not slow you down.  If you like a story filled with adventure and life and death, you will like this story.  It is a bit graphic and there is some profantiy, as a warning.
