The 33 by Jonathan Franklin

In 2010, the world turned towards Chile when the collapse of a copper mine left 33 men to survive underground for almost 3 months, the longest time in history.

Journalists flocked to the San Jose mine and the family's settlement 'Camp Hope' to follow the rescue mission, to see if the impossible could be achieved.

In this insightful and gripping account, Jonathan Franklin reveals what life was really like for the 33 men underground and how complex the rescue mission actually was.

A story of courage and camaraderie, it reveals the toll on minds and bodies trapped almost half a mile beneath the surface of the earth.
