Novellist Hector Tobar had unprecedented access to the 33 miners who spent 69 days trapped underground when the San Jose mine collapsed in Chile four years ago. All the miners survived following an epic multi-national rescue effort during the process, NASA and the Chilean navy submarine corp experts were called in to help to address the psychological toll the isolation can take on the miners.A few months after the rescue, Hector Tobar got to speak to each of the 33 men, and he's captured their stories in his book, Deep Down Dark - The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine, and the Miracle That Set Them Free.
