Description
Incredible but True Stories of Confronting Death and Emerging VictoriousThe rock climber who cut off his own arm with a penknife. The hiker who fought off a mountain lion. Passengers who survive the crash of a bush plane in Alaska. We read headlines we sometimes find hard to believe, yet there are on record dozens of such events. Here is a collection of tales from everyday people who faced terrible odds, accidents, extreme weather, wild animals, or severe injury, many describing how they entered another state of consciousness - an "adrenaline high" - to get away alive. Forget reality TV - this is real entertainment for the survival-story fanatic.
