Cover: 'Alive!'

Staff Review: "Alive!" by Reader's Digest Association


Have you ever wondered what it feels like to survive a tornado, flood or shark attack? ALIVE is a compilation of first-person articles previously published in the READER'S DIGEST magazine that describe such events. Twenty-two people share their memorable experiences with airplane crashes, cougar attacks, avalanches, firestorms and so on. It makes for gripping but not graphic reading.  All the stories have an inspirational message. 

Audience: adults | Genre: nonfiction
