I’d like to know what you all think is the best all-time true survival story. There are so many different examples of survival out there no one person could possibly know them all; however, I think between us we can come up with a pretty good list.
Being a mountaineer I tend to gravitate to stories around mountain climbing. One of my favorite stories is Minus 148 Degrees, the true story about the first winter ascent of Mt McKinley in Alaska. A few guys get caught near the summit in a huge storm and manage to survive about a week in brutally cold temps and crazy winds.
If you could provide a link, book name, or whatever, that would be excellent so that I and the rest of the readers can check them out. Don’t worry if you can’t just go ahead and leave a story. This can either be fiction or a real life event.
Also, feel free to leave more than one. I know there are literally thousands of stories out there and I enjoy reading about them
Hopefully I’ll get enough answers to come up with a top ten list that I can post later.
Ok, the balls in your court! Let’s hear about some survivors!
My beloved Boston Bruins finally brought home the Stanley Cup after beating Vancouver on their own ice. I know not everybody is a hockey fan, so just ignore this if you aren’t. For those who care… CONGRATULATIONS BRUINS!!!!
