Carol Shaben has won two National Magazine Awards for her journalism. Her first book, Into the Abyss, recounts the experiences of four men who survived a plane crash in the remote wilderness of Northern Alberta in 1984. The survivors were Larry Shaben, the author’s father and Canada’s first Muslim Cabinet Minister; the rookie pilot, an RCMP officer, and the criminal he was escorting. Shaben’s book combines in-depth reporting with sympathy and grace to explore how a single, tragic event can become a catalyst for transformation.
