The phenomenal successes of Into Thin Air and A Perfect Storm opened the floodgates for a whole new generation of writers and journalists to publish pulse-pounding accounts rich in suspense, heartbreak and against-the-odds triumph. Adventure titles, many of them heavily publicized and critically acclaimed, are now among the most popular in bookstores around the world. With Adrenaline Books' continuing success collecting the best writing on everything from climbing to exploration, now comes the first annual devoted to the year's best adventure writing. Included are exotic stories from Neil Hanson, who offers a riveting description of a desperate crew's resort to cannibalism; Edward Marriott, who hunts bull shark off Nicaragua's Miskito Coast; and Sy Montgomery, who details her search for a rare breed of pink river dolphin and the lethal creatures with whom she lives in the Amazon: tarantulas, vampire bats, and ship scorpions. Finally, here's a volume that gives armchair explorers what they want: the strongest, most gripping adventure stories published that year, assembled in one electrifying, must-have title.
