Book Review: Survive!

I just finished reading Survive! , by Peter Deleo. This is the story of his survival, written by him,  after a plane crash in the Sierra Nevadas. He spent 13 days hiking out to rescue. This book is an easy read. If his injures were as bad as he describes, especially his ankle, it is an amazing story of determination. Sometimes I questioned what he physically accomplished with his listed injures, mainly because it is hard for me to imagine climbing and descending  mountains, rambling over rocks, wading  chest high snow with a broken ankle. If you like true adventure stories, this one is pretty good, but some of the feats he performed and actions taken, in my mind, are questionable, so I will give it a 7 out of 10 because it held my interest.  It's worth the read.
