Not only is this a story of survival in the wilderness of Canada, it also deals with memories of days long ago.
Survivors of a plane crash try to determine the best way to get off a glacier. The rescue helicopters have not shown up and they are getting to the end of their wits. Most of the survivors are injured and unable to move much.
I like this story because it delves into the memories of yesterday. I am sure if one was faced with dying, those memories would surface. The characters are outstanding and do include a couple of "junkies"!
Will anyone be able to go for help? Wait until you meet Faulkner, the dog!
