Synopsis

Defying Death in the Mountains by Rob Shone

This title looks at extreme tales of survival in rocky, isolated mountain regions. We encounter Aron Ralston, who faces a life or death decision when he becomes trapped in the Blue John Canyon, Utah and the survivors of flight five-seven-one, which crashed into the Andes, Argentina in 1972. Graphic Survival Stories is an exciting new series about real life survival stories, in a graphic-novel format. Dramatic, full colour graphic illustrations are supported by short, accessible blocks of text and speech bubbles. Each title features three gripping tales of survival and includes an introduction to the habitat, maps, survival tips and a glossary to support the stories. Short summaries of more stories will prompt further research and discussion.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
