Following the successes of Epic, High, and Rough Water, the latest addition to the Adrenaline series presents the most gripping rescue narratives. Rescue includes Doug Scott's account of saving himself by crawling off Pakistan's Ogre with two broken legs, and Spike Walker's story of the race to recover a king crab fisherman from the Bering Sea in midwinter. The book also includes an account of trying to rescue two canoeists battling hypothermia on a storm-tossed lake; Alison Osius's tale of two teenagers lost in the Great Gulf Wilderness of New Hampshire; and a missionary doctor and his dog team being blown out to sea on an iceberg off the coast of Labrador.
Featuring Doug Scott's account of saving himself by crawling off Pakistan's Ogre with two broken legs, "Rescue" also includes superb writing about true adventures from alpine peaks, on the high seas, on hiking trails, in caves, and from the depths of the ocean. 16 photos.
