Description - Buried Alive! How 33 Miners Survived 69 Days Deep Under the Chilean Desert by Elaine Scott

In August 2010, thirty-three miners were buried alive, two thousand feet below the surface of the earth. After seventeen tense days, just as hope was nearly gone, rescuers made contact with the men. Joy broke out around the world--all thirty-three men were alive! But it would be long weeks before they emerged from the mine. What did the miners feel, trapped in the steamy darkness so far underground? What did they eat? How did they get along? And most important, how did they survive in those seventeen days when death lingered so near, and after, during the long wait for rescue? This amazing true story about problem-solving, community, and real-life heroes is made kid-friendly by veteran nonfiction writer Elaine Scott. It will inspire for years to come. AGES: 9 to 12 AUTHOR: Elaine Scott is the author of many nonfiction books for children, including the popular When Is a Planet Not a Planey? The Story of Pluto.
