BookPage's top pick for nonfiction this month is "one of the strangest survival stories of WWII." In 1945, a group of American soldiers flew over a remote valley in New Guinea and crashed into the side of a mountain. Only three out of 24 survived. Mitchell Zuckoff's amazingly-researched new book is practically an hour-by-hour account of what happened to the survivors.

Zuckoff gives us more information in this book trailer:

Want to learn about the rescue? Pick up Lost in Shangri-La, which is on sale now.

Want more info on 30-year-old survivor Margaret Hastings, a beautiful woman who was decades ahead of her time? Read this interview with Zuckoff.

Have you seen any good book trailers lately?
