Amazing Survival Stories from Alaska
A chilling collection of survival stories from pilots, hikers, hunters, climbers, boaters, and fishermen who confront their mortality -- and live to tell about it! You will be astonished by the close calls of a young man who clings desperately to life on an iceberg in the lower Susitna River . . . a woman who struggles frantically to escape the cockpit of a small plane sinking beneath the waters of a remote bay in Southeast . . . the climbers who fight stubbornly to survive as avalanche after avalanche sweeps over them . . . and the diver who tangles with a giant octopus.
". . . The overall message is one of hope and survival against incredible odds . . . both entertaining and inspiring."
