Matt read this with the boys, and they LOVED it. I will probably get some of his other books. We got this one from a school book order. My boys love non-fiction stuff, and this fit the bill just right. It goes over the stories of Apollo 13, the story of Shackleton's expedition into Antarctica, a shark attack, the story of the Hindenburg, and others.

This book has opened my eyes to some of the horrors of the worlds history. It is not a bad thing, history is a very good thing. But sometimes history can be so terrifying and sad. In this book are stories of people who have survived very tragic situations. And faced death straight in the face.
