summary for chapters 6~8
They decide to send more expeditions out. They climb the mountain this time. They get disappointed that it takes so long to go over the mountain because they think it would take a while. It takes a long time for them to reach the mountain. The parents start to find a way to find their children. They even hire a plane for the search. When they are on the expedition they have an argument of whether which way is to Chile. Some of them say that they should follow the road and some say they should keep on going West since Chile is towards the West. So in the end, they split up into half. Some go towards the West and some follow the road. While in the plane, the survivors have their daily life eating the human flesh. They also start using the human skin for warmth. They cut out some parts and warm themselves. People in the plane who have serious injuries are getting worse. Rafael Echavarren’s leg gets so bad that it is even hard to recognize. In the end, he dies. When he dies, everyone gets very desperate to escape as fast as they can.
