Eric Le Marue had been an athlete his entire life An Olympian and former professional hockey player he was known for his footwork on the ice His obsession when this book begins is powder in 2 forms finding fresh tracks for snowboarding and using Crystal Meth This gripping true story tells how after some bad decisions Eric got lost boarding on Mammoth mountain for 8 days yes 8 days Surviving with only minimal clothing 4 pieces of Bazooka gum an I pod and his Snowboard which he came to affectionately name Burton At the end of his ordeal Eric s feet were frozen into his boots he d lost 40 lbs yet ultimately found himselfFor the most part this book follows Eric s 8 day ordeal lost in chest deep snow and freezing conditions He evades wolves hunger thirst hypothermia and exhaustion as he climbs over a mountain range in the hopes of finding a rangers cabin and rescue Throughout we re also given flashbacks into his life unfortunately there s very little included here regarding his professional hockey career but he doesn t shy away from his descent into drugs or character flawsWell written and introspective you get a complete feel for the loneliness cold and utter frustration Eric is forced to endure and by his day 7 I couldn t put this book down As Eric awakes to yet another day on the frozen mountain and realizes he s dieing Suffering from exposure frostbite and hunger he s so far gone that he can no longer lace his boots and thinks he s in a video game searching for the reset button Then he hears a helicopterThere are some bittersweet moments here involving Burton the snowboard which over the week has saved his life become a tool a weapon and his best friend Think Wilson in Castaway And the sadness Eric feels gazing out the helicopter window as Burton is left behind during the rescue is heartbreaking Eric of course spends a long time in hospital trying save his frostbitten and dieing feet and also in rehab after he loses them These chapters are alternately motivational and heartbreaking as Eric sinks into depression and drug addiction once For a man whose entire life had been based on athleticism to loose his feet his whole world is going to have to change Eric ultimately rises to the challenge learning to walk and even snowboard again The ending chapters are a little vague and felt rushed to me with Eric finding god and coming to terms with himself and his new reality If you like adventure stories though this is a definite recommended readThere s also 8 pages of photographs including a couple in the Blackhawk helicopter directly after his rescue I found these pictures particularly disturbing as you can see the animal Eric had to become in order to survive 8 days on the mountain
