About this product
- DescriptionPeople overcome impossible odds where others surrendered and failed. What would you do if you were stranded or trapped in a situation where you had to fight for your life? When the Worst Happens is a collection of intense, true stories set in distant corners of the earth. * A massive cave-in traps 19-year-old Jimmy Sanchez and 32 other Chilean miners deep below the earth. * Twelve-year-old Bala and his two sisters must survive on a tiny island off the Australian coast after their boat capsizes. * When her plane crashes in the Peruvian jungle, 17-year-old Juliane struggles to find help. In extreme situations such as these, people can pull together, show almost super-human skill, and survive. But sometimes they face madness, greed or mutiny. These action-packed accounts reveal the critical decisions that determined the fate of each victim. In an attempt to answer the question why people react the way they do in extreme circumstances, When the Worst Happens also looks at modern psychological studies, interesting historical details and settings, as well as seemingly unrelated events, to discover what draws the line between success and tragedy.
