THE "EXTRAORDINARY" ("Booklist") #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER--THE "HARROWING" ("The Washington Post") SURVIVOR'S MEMOIR YOU WILL NEVER FORGET Aron Ralston, an experienced twenty-seven-year-old outdoorsman, was on a day's solitary hike through a remote and narrow Utah canyon when he dislodged an eight-hundred- pound boulder that crushed his right hand and wrist against the canyon wall.
