American Ambassador Diego Asencio bravely reconstructs his 61 days of captivity in Bogota, Colombia, with many other diplomats who were held by Colombia's M-19 guerrilla organization. This book is a rare look at how the captive diplomats played a large role in securing freedom. It is also testimony that, given time and effort, the honest practice of conflict resolution can bring positive results.
