Between a Rock and a Hard Place by Aron Ralston
Between a Rock and a Hard Place is about a man named Aron Ralston who is climbing in the mountains one day when a boulder fell in between the two rock walls he's climbing through. It smashed his left hand a little and lands on his right hand. Aron is trapped for six days without food and 21 oz of water. He is forced to cut his own hand off with a dull multi-tool. It was pretty grotesque the way Aron described the way he cut his hand off. In the end he hikes a while until he reaches a trail and sees a group of people who rush him to medical care.
