Books about survival span many genres. Some are true stories, or based on truth; others are completely fictional. Some explore different cultures or time frames, others are based around historical events. These titles are all about characters who strive to survive - who are often heroic, struggling through danger, hardship and personal sacrifice in order to live to fight another day.external image n139606.jpg
