    Into the Mountain: Hostaged by the Abu Sayyaf

    Jose Torres Jr.

    Winner, National Book Award, Journalism, 2001
    The book recounts the horrifying and heroic experience of the March 2000 hostages. It provides the first book-length look into the tragic but ultimately triumphant saga of Father Rhoel Gallardo and his companions at the hands of the dreaded Abu Sayyaf. It also situates the bandit group’s brazen terrorism with stories from a former Abu Sayyaf urban assassin, a long-time Basilan immigrant, a legendary Christian vigilante, and an inter-faith dialogue pioneer.
