Stranded

Would-be explorers and adventurers will relish these survival stories set in some of the world’s most dangerous and isolated environments. Books open with the first of three- or- four dramatic, real-life stories, followed by a well-written general introduction to the region-including landforms, flora and fauna, weather, and culture-and close with a survival guide. A world map highlights the regions, and the stories center on teens and adults stranded in locations in the United States and around the globe. Authors don’t minimize the survival struggles, some of which ended in death, but avoid sensationalism. Appealing layouts feature text boxes with ample information and boxed color photos and maps superimposed on full-color background photos. These books make learning about these regions exciting and entertaining. Bound to draw an audience, this series is a solid first-purchase choice.
