Ever wondered what it would be like to defy death in the desert, to be a spy with a special mission, or to fend off sharks from a shipwreck? Each of these high-interest, daring volumes shares the stories of adventurers, spies, soldiers, heroes and more in ways that make you feel like you were there to witness the adventure too. Because the stories are true, these volumes provide inspiring examples of real-life bravery, not just fictionalized stories of things that "could have" happened. On the other hand, although the details don't dwell on graphic situations, there may be some unappealing elements in some stories. Each single book includes 10 stories, and has 144 pages. Collections or higher-priced books are compilations of single books.
