Even Silence Has an End by Ingrid BetancourtTitle:  Even Silence Has an End:  My Six Years in Captivity in the Colombian Jungle

Author:  Ingrid Betancourt

Call #:  986.106 BET

In this agonizing story of being held prisoner in the jungle for six years by leftist guerrillas, former Colombian presidential candidate Ingrid Betancourt takes us on a devastating journey through her nightmare existence as she wages a battle for her physical and mental survival and struggles to save her soul from despair and surrender.  Chained by the neck for great lengths of time, often ill and abused, she endured not only physical pain but mental torture as both guards and prisoners fought for their sanity.  Despite several failed escape attempts, Betancourt displays personal courage and a rare strength of will to finally reach freedom.
