Item description for The Sky Is Always There: Surviving a Kidnapping in Chechnya by Camilla Carr & Jonathan James...

Tells the story of the kidnap in Chechnya and 14 month captivity of two British aid workers. This book gives an account that charts their struggle not only to survive physically, but to emerge from their ordeal with their faith in humanity still intact.

Publishers Description
In April 1997-98 Camilla Carr and Jon James set off as volunteers in a A#500 Lada stacked high with toys, games, footballs, paints and a parachute. Their destination was Chechnya and their aim was to work with children who had been traumatised by war. After working for two months setting up and teaching in a rehabilitation centre and watching the children begin to smile and play again, they were kidnapped by Chechen guerrillas. There followed fourteen months of incarceration in a homesa that varied from a concrete box with no natural light or fresh air, to a pink trompe la oeil bedroom via a sauna and various cellars. They experienced everything from rape and mental torture to moments of compassion and kindness. They survived by using tools such as tai chi, yoga, meditation and humour; and through creating a dialogue with their captors, looking beneath their masks of fear and anger to reach the small flame of love and laughter unquenched by the demonising nature of war.
