Join us at Speer Memorial Library in Mission, on Tuesday, June 19, 2018, for a discussion of Between a Rock and a Hard Place, to take place in the library’s Community Room at 6:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend and discuss the book.

It is 2003, and hiking and biking in wilderness areas is the life for Aron Ralston. And, as an employee of an outdoor accessories store in Aspen, Colorado, he has the perfect job to complement his love of the outdoors.

Saturday, April 26, finds him hiking through the rock-strewn canyon lands of desolate southeastern Utah. Also, he hopes to photograph the beauty of the rocky desert landscape, and some very ancient Native American artwork as well. But his plans suddenly change when he becomes trapped in the rocks, all alone.

First published in 2004, Between a Rock and a Hard Place is the inspiring biographical account of the author’s predicament. At the mercy of his remote surroundings, and with no escape and no one knowing his location, he had only one option other than death.
