In 2008, Amanda Lindhout was a 27 year old with a hunger for experiencing remote places, trying to make it as a freelance journalist. But shortly after arriving in Somalia, Lindhout -- along with photojournalist Nigel Brennan and their guides -- was kidnapped, subjected to horrific abuse and held for ransom for 460 days. She has chronicled her experiences as a hostage in the book, "A House in the Sky," and joins us to discuss the experience and her continued work in Somalia.

Guests:

Amanda Lindhout, co-author of "A House in the Sky"

Sara Corbett, co-author of "House in the Sky" and contributing writer to the New York Times Magazine
