The Way Out: A True Story of Survival

The Way Out: A True Story of Survival

Craig Childs


Craig Childs is misplaced. In a labyrinth of canyons within the American Southwest the place almost not anything else is alive - slightly any plants, few indicators of natural world, scant hint of any human precursors during this panorama - Childs and his pal Dirk adopt a fortnight's trip. With as a lot nutrition and kit as they could hold, and little else yet their wiles to aid them traverse the inhospitable, unmappable terrain, the 2 males imagine the life-or-death problem of exploring this land - after which discovering a manner out. both gripping as their experience within the wild is the parallel tale, informed in flashback, of what has propelled the 2 males into those severe conditions. In scenes that crackle with pressure and suspense - memories of barroom brawls, high-speed motor vehicle chases and reckless feats of risk-taking - we find the fabulous legacy of violence that every guy is escaping. As a chronicle of event, as emotionally-charged human drama, as confessional memoir, the best way OUT is a transcendent e-book, a piece destined to earn an enduring position within the literature of extremes.
