Into The Abyss by Carol Shaben

Into The Abyss book cover

“Once you’ve tasted flight,” Leonardo da Vinci said, “you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward.” He never said what happens after a crash landing. That’s where award-winning investigative journalist Carol Shaben steps in with the true story of four men — her father, Canada’s first Muslim cabinet minister; a rookie 24-year-old pilot; a policeman; and the petty criminal the cop was minding — who survived after their small commuter plane slammed into the remote Alberta woods one frosty night. Her riveting narrative pieces together events leading to the crash and its effects on the survivors.
