On October 12, 1972, a plane carrying a team of young rugby players crashed into the remote, snow-peaked Andes. Out of the forty-five original passengers and crew, only sixteen made it off the mountain alive. For ten excruciating weeks, they suffered deprivations beyond imagining, confronting nature head-on at its most furious and inhospitable. And to survive,these men and women not only had to keep their faith, they had to make an impossible decision: Should they eat the flesh of their dead friends? A remarkable story of endurance and determination, Alive is the dramatic bestselling account of one of the most harrowing quests for survival in modern times.

Piers Paul Read, the son of poet and art critic Sir Herbert Read, was raised in North Yorkshire, was educated by Benedictine monks at Ampleforth College, and was a student of history at Cambridge University. Before publishing his first novel, Game in Heaven, he worked as a subeditor on the Times Literary Supplement. His fiction and nonfiction has won many awards, and several of his works have been adapted for television or film.

Paul Ansdell has been an actor and voice actor for over twenty years and can be heard narrating numerous audiobooks including The Woman in Black and I'm the King of the Castle, both by Susan Hill, and Deadly Focus by RC Bridgestock.
