This is an auction for THE 33: THE ULTIMATE CCOUT OF THE CHILEAN MINERS' DRAMATIC RESCUE, by Jonathan Franklin .

Amazon.com review:

"On 12 October 2010 the world's attention was fixed on a remote copper mine in the Atacama desert in Chile. Preparations were underway for a daring rescue to bring to an end the longest underground entrapment in human history. Sixty-nine days earlier, 33 men were midway through a routine shift, deep in the San Jose mine. They stopped for lunch in a tiny safety shelter, 688 meters below the surface. Ten minutes later they heard a crack and a deep rumbling sound. Clouds of dust and debris poured down on the choking men. The bombardment lasted for five hours. When it cleared the men discovered they were trapped under tonnes of collapsed rock. Seventeen days after the collapse, a drill reached them. They sent a note back to the surface: 'We are well inside the shelter, the 33.' Jonathan Franklin takes us deep into the collapsed mine with the men, and behind the scenes of the rescue effort to bring them back to life. For seventeen days, hope slowly turned to desperation and then resignation as the miners prepared for a slow agonising death. When a drill finally got through to the men, they still had over seven weeks to wait until they were freed. What those men experienced in the claustrophobic dark of the mine, how their families kept faith, and the unprecedented scale of the rescue make this an unforgettable story of how hope overcame fear, ingenuity triumphed over adversity and how thirty-three trapped men and their rescuers created a miracle in the desert."
