Deep Down Dark The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine and the Miracle That Set Them Free Free download ↠ 109 Ue the story of the miners experiences below the earths surface and the lives that led them there hasn't been heard until now In this master work of a Pulitzer Prizewinning journalist Hctor Tobar gains exclusive access to the miners and their stories The result is a miraculous and emotionally textured account of the thirty three men who came to think of the San Jos. The San Jos Mine on the fringe of the Atacama Desert in northern Chile spirals down nearly as deep as the tallest building on Earth is tall and the drive along the Ramp from the surface to the deepest part of the mine is about five milesThe Atacama Desert is one of the oldest and driest deserts in the world There was once a river the Copiap which ran through a city of the same name on the edge of the Atacama but mining and population pressures have long since bled the river dry Copiap is where the men working in shifts of seven days on and seven days off sleep during their work week at the San Jos Mine These facts alone would make a story about Copiap fascinating but since August 2010 we remember the province for a mining disaster that transfixed the worldIt is difficult to imagine the ordeal thirty three men trapped deep in a Chilean mine with less than two days stored food and a few bottles of clean water must have experienced in their than two months underground awaiting rescue though it is less difficult to imagine the despair and anxiety filling these men as they contemplated their situation By any common reckoning the men should have died At a different time or place they might have but by the extraordinary perseverance of the families of the miners and the efforts of an international team of mine rescuers the men were resurrected to face life above ground once again This is the story of their experience how a disparate group of men working overtime to pay their bills and as a newly formed team are trapped together in a collapsing mine by a sheared mega block of the igneous rock diorite precursor to granite one third the height and twice as heavy as the Empire State BuildingThe story has a propulsion all its own Our understanding of the ordinary stressors of a working day is amplified by the dark hot and humid conditions of the imprisonment These men all know how mine collapses of this magnitude have been treated in the past and must look past their expectations for weeks to hold out hope for a rescue We saw the event unfold from the outside Now for the first time we hear the inside story By some remarkable act of will and foresight the men agree to share their story as a team No member of the thirty three will gain fortune by exploiting the story they all shared How H ctor Tobar US citizen correspondent for the Los Angeles Times and son of Guatemalan immigrants to the US is chosen to tell the story is fascinating in itself and is shared in the New York Times Book Review Podcast The explosive noises changes in air pressure falling rock dust and debris surrounding the men during the most severe thirty minutes of the collapse is terrifying enough The moment the men realize their path to the surface is blocked and the moment the rescuers discover the same news from their side of the megabloue is responded to with the exact same words Estamos cagados loose translation We re fucked What happens after the men realize their predicament how they react to one another to their imaginations to their hunger pain sorrow is what makes this story such a remarkable document The process of the rescue is interleaved with the telling of the internal lives of the trapped men It is hard to put this book down so convinced are we that we will learn something valuable about the strength and resilience of men under pressureThe proceeds from the sale of the book and a movie if it comes to that will go to the miners themselves which is incentive enough to buy the book though we learn through our reading that money created problems than it solved for these humble and stoic men We wish them well and god willing a life worthy of their enormous challenge
