Page history last edited by MrsK Books 5 years, 7 months ago

Are you ready for an adventure?

Would you be willing to "dig" deep within for the strength to be ever resourceful?

Could you make the right choices?

Would you survive?

Survival shelters in the woods


I Survived Collection #1

Magic Tree House Survival Guide
Shipwreck!: A Survive! Story
Camping and Survival: The Ultimate Outdoors Book
Amazon: You Decide How to Survive! (Worst-Case Scenario Ultimate Adventure Series)
Pocket Guide to the Outdoors: Based on My Side of the Mountain Survival Squad: Search and Rescue: Book 2




These are stories about facing odds against survival in a variety of times and places.

Danger is everywhere and the character’s courage is challenged.


  • Adventure stories are dominated by action
  • They involve danger, risk, and excitement
  • The action is fast-paced
  • Adventure stories are sometimes set in exotic or distant places
  • The protagonist has a limited number of resources
  • Events in an adventure story are more remarkable and extraordinary than in everyday life
  • In the best stories, adventures change the hero/protagonist
  • Characters succeed without adult assistance
  • Characters, often children, encounter situations that require quick thinking, problem solving, and inner strength


When you open the covers of one of these books, you are daring to become wiser... stronger... better equipped... and changed! The leader in you will emerge in your every day life. Life's challenges will meet your inner opponent... you will be armed with tools that will last a life time!


And so your journey begins...

Let me know how you survived...
