Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0749950528, Paperback)Jamie Andrew's survival and rescue after five nights trapped by a ferocious storm in 1999 has passed into Alpine legend. It was a miracle that he survived; but Jamie had to come to terms not only with the death of his close friend, Jamie Fisher, who died beside him - but also with the loss of all his limbs to frostbite. Since the accident, Jamie has struggled painfully and successfully to overcome his disabilities; not only has he learnt to walk (and run) on his prosthetic legs, but also to ski, snowboard, paraglide - and even take up his beloved mountaineering again.

Jamie Andrew was trapped on Les Droites in the French Alps for five days, and lost both hands and both feet to frostbite. Yet he recovered to run the London marathon, and he climbed Mont Blanc again. This is his remarkable story.
