On the fifth night, wracked by delirium and uncontrollable shivers, Aron scratched his epitaph into the rock wall, certain he would not see daylight.

Excellent Story

I watched the movie and decided that I would listen to the audio book. I wasn't disappointed. Aron narrates the piece and he places you in the canyon alongside him.
