Surviving the Ice
From the Series Iron Will
About 400 miles from the North Pole, a plane crashes, stranding its passengers in the freezing cold. There is little shelter, and temperatures dip dozens of degrees below freezing. With an oncoming blizzard, rescue is delayed. This was the beginning of a 30-hour ordeal for the survivors of the crash, who had been on their way to an outpost in the icy wilderness of northern Canada. Iron Will: Surviving the Ice tells five chilling stories of people who found themselves lost, stranded, or abandoned in deathly cold conditions. From enduring frostbite and hypothermia, to traversing dangerous ice crevasses and deadly winds, readers will learn how the survivors beat the odds to live through their icy adventures.
