The Lovereading4Kids comment

Amazing real live stories of the endurance and courage showed by individuals faced with extreme situations. Those demonstrating powers of survival include the Arctic explorer Ernest Shackleton, the crew of Apollo 13 and the world-renowned escapologist Harry Houdini. It is a thrilling record of the art of the possible.
