Reviews

"Gripping and emotionally affecting. . . a deep and satisfying book."--Washington Post
"[Shaben] vividly recreates how these four total strangers managed to survive the tragedy."--New York Post
"With Into the Abyss Carol Shaben gives us an astonishing true story of catastrophe and redemption. Shaben writes from the inside out, as in the best non-fiction, creating a nuanced and tightly braided portrait of four men and their shared trauma that is by turns terrifying and deeply humane. Every line in this story rings true."--John Vaillant, author of The Tiger
"Electrifying...Shaben's riveting narrative is filled with heart and the story is well told."--Publishers Weekly
"[T]his is a complex, chilling narrative rendered with depth and precision, engaged in both its characters and the larger social moment... A worthy addition to the canon of extreme-survival nonfiction."--Kirkus
"As a concept, it doesn't get much better [than this]... Into the Abyss is in the best traditions of true-life journalism and grips from beginning to end."--Iain Finlayson, The Times
"The gripping account . . . is ultimately about the survivors, telling the story in scouring yet respectful detail of the four men who limped away from the fatal crash."--Fish Griwkowsky, Edmonton Journal
"A story that has haunted Vancouver-based writer Carol Shaben, Larry's daughter, since it happened... She was able to use [Archambault's] story to take readers along on that stormy night, to the side of a mountain where four men struggled to stay alive overnight alongside the six others who had died."--Tracy Sherlock, Vancouver Sun
