5/10/06: Miracle in the Andes
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – When the plane carrying a Uruguayan rugby team crashed in the Andes in 1972, Nando Parrado lay unconscious for three days. He woke only to find his mother dead, his sister dying, and the survivors trapped on a 12,000 foot glacier. After two months in this lifeless terrain, Parrado led the 45-mile expedition to find help - and to find home. Parrado is in Salt Lake City, and joins Doug Fabrizio to talk about his remarkable story of friendship, tragedy and perseverance.
The King's English Bookshop will host Nando Parrado for a book signing and slideshow this evening, Wednesday, May 10th at 7:00. The event will be held at the Patagonia Outlet at 2292 S Highland Drive. For more information, visit the King's English or call them at 484-9100.
