Life and Limb
A True Story of Tragedy and Survival Against the OddsBook - 2003
Jamie Andrew's rescue after five nights trapped by a ferocious storm on Mont Blanc has passed into Alpine legend; his survival was miraculous - but his close friend died in his arms and Jamie himself lost both his hands and legs to frostbite. His description of that episode is both enthralling and harrowing. The book also describes Jamie's life since he learnt to walk again on prosthetic legs - and since then he has married his long-term girlfriend, Anna, and, astonishingly, both climbed Mont Blanc again and ran in the London Marathon.
