Trapped

Trapped:  How the World Rescued 33 Miners From 2,000 Feet Below the Chilean Desert by Marc Aronson is a fascinating read about the San José Mine in northern Chile and the teamwork that enabled the thirty-three miners to survive seventeen days before being discovered. They remained trapped underground sixty-nine days in all before they were brought safely out of the mine.

Pictures, diagrams, a timeline and additional resources are included. Especially interesting is a chapter in the end pages titled “How I Wrote this Book” which gives Aronson’s advice about researching current events and sources.
