Description
This book presents some of the world's most remarkable survival stories in gripping detail—from natural disasters, accidents, air crashes, and shipwrecks to pursuits, prison escapes, and hostage situations—reporting on developments turn-by-turn and graphically depicting the situation with timeline maps and photographs. Here are classic survival stories reported in a fresh and readable style, from the open-boat voyage of William Bligh after the 1789 Bounty mutiny to the return of the crippled Apollo 13 space capsule in 1970, as well as such recent events as the 2010 Chilean mine collapse that kept 33 men trapped underground, and the escape of 18-year-old Natascha Kampusch from eight years' captivity in a cellar prison in Vienna.
