That is what religion provides people. Throughout his journey through the jungle, the judicial system, the economic system, and his personal moral system all fail Jurgis. Ironically, no real mention of a religious strength exists. Early on, a priest vouches for the legal age of Stanislovas, but that is the extent of Jurgis' religious life.

Journeys Through Hell evokes depths of empathy for the catastrophically burned patients Stouffer introduces to the reader. They undergo cringe-worthy procedures and excruciating pain to survive as drastically changed human beings with their dignity intact.

You’re not likely to feel sorry for yourself again after reading the accounts of these prodigiously courageous survivors who must revise their self-images and recast their identities after a physical transformation renders them unrecognizable to themselves. Like the phoenix, they must rise from the ashes of the old self so that a new self may be born.

Some burn victims cannot summon the will to live in the face of devastating physical destruction, some suffering third-degree burns over 90% of their bodies. Those who survive do so with earned wisdom and hope for the future. They are indebted to the support of loved ones and to the kindness of skilled medical personnel for giving them the spiritual heft to bear the unbearable.

Although an academic study, Journeys through Hell touches emotional chords. It is peopled with varied personalities, some of whom linger in our thoughts, reminding us how vulnerable we all are to the vagaries of chance.

Journeys Through Hell is an important book that takes the reader into the inner, private lives of burn injury survivors. This is a gem of a book, a social psychological study that relies on the narrative stories provided by burn survivors themselves who, in biographical fashion let us look at what it means to be a survivor of a terrible injury. What it means, very much unanticipated by the severely injured person in the initial stages of the injury, is pain, anguish, torture, and very importantly, hope and anticipation of a healed future.
While the book focuses on severe burns, it really has a much broader appeal: it is really about what it means to be a trauma survivor. The trauma could be physical, psychological or both. In any case, the book is about how people experience the most extreme personal loss, and sudden, terrifying change. In instantly experiencing the destruction of their normal, everyday lives, and in having their worlds shattered, we see how the survivors slowly struggle to be reborn, and come whole again.
What Dr. Stouffer does so well, often very eloquently and with great sensitivity to the survivors, is the fact that he draws out from the survivors their hidden stories, fears, and deep feelings of loss as well as hope. He shows how survivors slowly come to understand what they have lost and how, with the help of caring others, they may go on to find deep, abiding strengths they never realized they possessed. Stouffer gives strong voice to the survivors, allowing them to tell their stories, while skillfully weaving their accounts into a sociological, constructionist foundation. This book is not dull sociology, or mind numbing psychological theory. It is vividly presented real human drama that helps illuminate how we all cope with personal loss, and how we build our lives. I strongly recommend Journeys Through Hell.
