Description

A grueling story of hostage-taking.

In Ecuador, on September 11, 1999, eight oil workers -- seven Canadians and one American -- on a routine repair mission for United Pipeline Systems were taken hostage by fifteen armed guerrillas.

At gunpoint, the hostages were marched through the dense, snake-infested jungle. Constantly on the move, they fought hunger, sickness, hopelessness, and despair as death loomed. One hundred days later the hostages finally emerged from the bush, emaciated and feverish.

This book includes an epilogue that tracks the fate of the workers to the present day. 100 Days in the Jungle tells a story beyond the newspaper headlines and into the heart of the jungle.
