This is an auction for LOST IN THE HIMALAYAS: JAMES SCOTT'S 43-DAY ORDEAL by James Scott and Joanne Robertson.

Foreword by Tim Macartney-Snape. reviews:

"FIVE STARS!!! Maybe it's because I'm involved in Search and Rescue myself . . . and maybe it has something to do with the fact that I'll be going to Nepal for three months in May, 2010, to meet and spend time with Ingo Schnabel and the rest of the Himalayan Rescue Dog Squad, who were involved in the search for James . . . but I read this book in one sitting and found it riveting. Though I knew the outcome of James' ordeal before ever turning to page 1, as will anyone who looks at the book jacket, reading the details of his suffering, endurance, despair and hope in his own words made me feel like I was there on the ledge where James spent those 43 days, watching him. And, at times, I almost forgot that he'd survive, as he lay there, starving and cold. I found his sister Joanne's entries just as riveting."

"FIVE STARS!!! This book was amazing. I found the entries by James and his sister insightful and realistic. I loved the fact that there was a total honesty about the way they told the story, which propels you to learn more. There was never a time when I felt that I was not a part of the story, I felt as if I was suffering along with the Ryans and the Scotts'. A lovely read!"
