Play the main character in your own adventure story! Each richly illustrated situation includes a disaster, and you must choose between three options for survival. As you choose, you'll learn real-world survival skills as well as facts about wild animals, natural disasters, and everyday accidents.
As you dash to catch your flight home from a tropical trip, your dream vacation in Borneo quickly turns into a nightmare. Your plane crashes in the Himalayas! You’re charged by a rhino in India! A rip current in Australia sucks you out to sea! What do you do? In each situation, you’ll have a choice to make—and the actions you choose will determine whether you make it home. For each disaster choice, you're directed to a different page to find out if you survived—or not—and why. Adventures include venomous snake bite, avalanche, car submersion, hotel fire, quicksand, lightning strike, lionfish sting, shark attack, elevator plunge, yellow jacket attack,and more! Each adventure leads to the next disaster, keeping you riveted page after page.
Unlike most survival guides, which are deadly serious, the lively and informative text of Will You Survive? is beautifully designed and filled with photographs, illustrations, infographics, and icons. You'll have as much fun poring over the images as you will reading the text. Best yet, the next time you're cornered by a snow leopard or caught in an earthquake, you'll know what to do!
