How they were found, interacted with the natives and ultimately were rescued forms the bulk of the book, but the author went above and beyond, even visiting "Shangri-la" himself and utilizing diaries, letters and first person interviews makes for a fascinating narrative. Approximately 30% of the book is dedicated to references and index.
If you are looking for a story about the war, this might not be the book for you, but as a story of survival and stamina it is definitely worth a read.
I bought a second copy so that one of my children could enjoy the story as much as I did.
