Great writings about adventure, danger, and survival—from fiction classics to the official report on the Titanic.

You’ll find true accounts by stoic and hardy sailors who persevered in the face of travails that would have given even Job pause—as well as vivid and exciting fiction by Jack London, Herman Melville, Arthur Conan Doyle, and more.
