My favorite is Wild: Stories of Survival from the World's Most Dangerous Places. The most literary of the bunch, it consists of stories by Evelyn Waugh, Norman Maclean, Jack London and the extremely witty Redmond O'Hanlon. This collection did exactly what an anthology is meant to do: It introduced me to new writers and presented new stories from authors with whom I am already acquainted. It made me laugh, scared me and held me in thrall."
"Armchair adventurers would be pleased with any of the new 'Adrenaline' recordings from Listen & Live Audio."

"Each set has a variety of four or five narrators, all of whom are excellent readers. Variety comes in the stories themselves, which portray a wide range of experiences. Many of the stories will keep you on the edge of your seat. Others will make you marvel and wonder at these crazy fools who risk their lives."
