Our 'fight of flight' response is something hardwired into the primitive part of our brain. Our need to survive, to outlive whatever danger poses, that immediate threat to our lives is little short of a marvel. Everything else is abandoned in order to survive. Whilst in modern times that ability has been somewhat modified and 'reasoned' away to an extent, in past years it's what usually kept you alive.In this volume people struggle valiantly to survive and to exist no matter the extent of the threat they face. In the words of our authors including William Hope Hodgson, Richard Connell, Jack London, Honore de Balzac and a wealth of others, they vividly demonstrate how or whether the participants survive ... or fail. 01 - Short Stories About Survival - An Introduction 02 - The White Silence by Jack London 03 - A Passion in the Desert by Honoré de Balzac 04 - The Interlopers by Saki the pseudonym for H H Munro 05 - The Outcasts of Poker Flat by Bret Harte 06 - Taman by Mikhail Yurievich Lermontov 07 - The Great Slave by Zane Grey 08 - The Voice in the Night by William Hope Hodgson 09 - The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell 10 - The Open Boat by Stephen Crane 11 - To Build a Fire by Jack London 12 - The Snowstorm - Part 1 by Leo Tolstoy 13 - The Snowstorm - Part 2 by Leo Tolstoy
