I've heard Reporter David Rohde's incredible story of capture and escape from the Taliban, and it's a gripping tale.  You can hear it too when he comes to Reno to accept an award for Courage in Journalism at UNR. Rohde was taken captive in Afghanistan and held for seven months before he managed to escape.  He and his wife, Kristen Mulvihill, wrote about the ordeal in the new book "A Rope and a Prayer."  He'll tell his story in person March 3rd, at the University of Nevada school of Journalism, where he will accept the Frank McCulloch Award for Courage in Journalism.
