What started out as a hike in the mountains of Iraqi-Kurdistan turned into a 781-day prison ordeal for three American tourists who unknowingly crossed the border into Iran in 2009. And, now, the former prisoners -- Josh Fattal, Shane Bauer, and Sarah Shourd – detail the horror of their experience in a new memoir, “A Sliver of Light.”

“We didn't know we ended up hiking along the border between Iran and Iraq, and when a guard called us over, we come, and realize that, wow, we're in the wrong place, we did not mean to be here,” Josh Fattal told “Power Players.”

“We later found out that the trail we were on was the border, an unmarked border between Iran and Iraq; so, when the guards called us to them, they were actually calling us into Iran,” Shourd said of the misunderstanding that led to their extended imprisonment in Iran’s notorious Evin prison.

Shourd spent more than a year in solitary confinement.

“Solitary confinement, it reduces you to an almost animal-like state,” she said. “I spent many hours a day just crouched by the food slot in my door listening for sounds from the outside to orient me, um, to make me feel less alone. Pacing incessantly, there were times that I lost control and screamed and beat at the walls.”

But Shourd said her love for Shane and Josh, as well as solidarity with her fellow prisoners, helped keep her spirit alive through the challenging time.

“Prisoners always find a way to connect,” Shourd said. “And there were so many women inside that broke rules to pass me notes or to give me candy and sometimes the prisoners would push past the guards and throw their arms around me just to tell me that they loved and me and they hoped that I would be free. … And that strength and solidarity -- that defiance -- is what kept me alive in prison.”
