Summary

Summary

Thomas Hargrove's Long March to Freedom, a record of his eleven months as a hostage of Colombian guerrillas, was the basis for the hit movie Proof of Life that starred Meg Ryan, Russell Crowe, and David Morse. While the movie invented a fictitious romantic angle, Long March to Freedom is the actual journal Hargrove kept in captivity. The listener gets a sense of the tension and intense emotions caused by bouts of monotony broken by sudden brutality, as well as the strength, wit, and personality through which Hargrove kept himself alive.
