Great American Survival Stories
edited by Lamar Underwood
Although survival—something every human strives to achieve on a daily basis—is often taken for granted, it is just this everyday imperative that makes for the most exciting stories. When something goes wrong, when survival is threatened, often by something as simple and sudden as a boat overturning or a traveler losing his or her way, this is when the necessity of survival is no longer just another daily chore. This is when something so intrinsic as breathing or swallowing becomes the most essential need and the most sought-after desire.
Great American Survival Stories includes contributions from Jack London, Theodore Roosevelt, John Wesley Powell, Owen Chase, John Muir, Osborne Russell, Stephen Crane, Francis Parkman, Henry David Thoreau, Richard Henry Dana Jr., and others.
