Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Survive brings together stories about people who find themselves stuck in survival situations in lifeboats, mountains, desert islands, jungles and the arctic. Most of the stories are about ordinary people who must perform heroically to survive — and some of them are forced to break our greatest taboo to stay alive. The narratives that have emerged are dramatic and compelling, involving issues of physical, moral, and emotional courage. Survive features standout writing from Steven Callahan (Adrift), Leonard Clark (The Rivers Ran East), Lennard Bickel (Shackleton's Forgotten Men), Virginia Reed Murphy (Across the Plains in the Donner Party), Jack London (The Whale Tooth), Herman Melville (Typee), and even Patrick O'Brian (The Nutmeg of Consolation). Like other Adrenaline titles, this one continues to tap one of our greatest literary resources: exceptional human beings in extreme circumstances. 17 black-and-white photographs accompany the gripping adventure stories.

Synopsis:

Tapping into a great literary resource--exceptional human beings in extreme circumstances--"Survive" features standout writing from such masters of the genre as Dougal Robertson, William Laird McKinley, James D. Houston, Neil Hanson, and Patrick O'Brian. 16 photos.
