Now, for the first time, the miners tell their own story -- in a dramatic, riveting, first-person account of their actions and emotions and how they managed to make it through.They recount their fears, prayers, and confessions to one another, and how they maintained the hope that theyd get out alive while deciding how to drown with dignity. We also hear of the agony their wives, girlfriends, and families went through not knowing if they were living or dead. They also reveal -- when rescue appeared imminent -- how it was decided who would be the last man up, and their emotions upon touching solid ground and seeing loved ones theyd thought they would never see again.
