Title:Left for Dead: How I survived 71 days lost in a desert hell
In April 2006 the news broke of an amazing feat of survival by a white man in one of the most inhospitable areas of Australia. Ricky Megee was found sheltering by a dam on a remote cattle property in the Northern Territory. After being abducted on the Buntine Highway, drugged, then left for dead, Ricky had walked for 10 days in bare feet through unforgiving terrain in blistering heat. Stumbling upon a dam, he set up camp there and survived for almost three months on leeches, grasshoppers, frogs, and plants, losing more than 130 pounds in the process. In Left for Dead, Ricky Megee tells for the first time since his extraordinary rescue the full story of his abduction and survival, vividly and with candor. A gripping tale and a fascinating read, Left for Dead is both shocking and inspiring, the tale of how one man endured a terrible ordeal and lives to tell the tale.
