Summary Tales of survival are as old as humanity! In Survival: True Stories , readers discover accounts of survival that required innovation, a thirst for adventure, and even a bit of brutality. Whether it's Shackleton on the frozen landscape of Antarctica or William Bligh and his loyal followers adrift in the Pacific after mutiny on the Bounty , survival is a fascinating topic for readers ages 9 to 12! Survival is the second book in the Murder & Mayhem series, which features true tales that whet kids' appetites for history by engaging them in genres with proven track records -- mystery and adventure. History is made of near misses, unexplained disappearances, unsolved mysteries, and bizarre events that are almost too weird to be true -- almost! The Mystery & Mayhem series delves into the past to provide kids with a jumping-off point into a lifelong habit of appreciating history. Each of the true tales told in Survival are paired with interesting facts about the setting, the industry, and the time period.
