Tell us all about it in comments! Captains Courageous, by Rudyard Kipling After a snowfall and several dead ends, the rescue party turns into a search party, looking for Amy's body. Paperback

My suggested tagline/grabber: Planning a hike in the great outdoors? Anna Hackett. And then she meets him—and as anyone who's experienced the jolt of immediate, irrational attraction can attest, all prior bets are off. In book one, Anna runs from her past and moves from New York to the Guadalupe Mountains of West Texas to be a park ranger.
Smith (Dragon Lords of Valdier, Lords of Kassis & Zion Warriors)
This fast-paced survival thriller goes back and forth between the two women’s perspectives as both race against time and the elements. From that premise Garland explores a universal truth: the biggest threats to any society come from within. The Odyssey, by Homer Greed, paranoia, and the lawless Mexican wilderness all conspire to bring misfortune on their heads before they can profit from their find. My mom is on oxygen for lung disease and some of the things Celine did just weren’t accurate from our experience. At their core, however, the stories of Harry Flashman’s exploits are adventures, as Harry travels the world and relies on his wits and his ability to foist consequences onto others to survive while fighting, seducing, and gambling his way through life. All rights reserved. I would add Tara Janzen’s Steele Street Series, hot men, fast cars, lots of kiss kiss bang bang ! If they get caught, the consequences would be deadly.
The only ones you missed of my list are Christine Feehan and a real old but goodie is Leslie Charteris The Saint series for some of the best humour. Paperback And, “Dog Star” by Peter Heller has similarly evocative descriptions of nature as “The River” and “Celine” but it’s a dystopian literary mystery. Hi Louise! They are easy to read and the characters will become your “Friends.” I started giving these books to my brother in law and they helped him return to reading for pleasure.
Definitely gritty, especially Hard Truth. That's what My Fake Rake is so clever and unexpected: Lady Grace Wyatt, a wealthy woman, chooses to turn her anthropologist friend Sebastian into a "proper" gentleman to make another man jealous.
Paperback Thanks for the recs!
Welcome to the Goddamn Ice Cube confronts the alternately painful and beautiful realities of being a woman in the wilderness, offering a nuanced perspective on what drives us to get (and stay) outside.
Soon enough, you'll be swept up into a world of duchesses in big dresses and charming rakes with winks in their eyes. Sharpe’s Tiger, by Bernard Cornwell All three almost die several times before they finally emerge from a volcano in Italy—but imminent death is a key feature of most adventure fiction. She adopts a pseudonym, Tris. Kim learns the “Great Game” of espionage and secret politics in the heat of India before being identified as English and sent back to England where he’s schooled and trained in spycraft. Adventure novels always assume a world based on chaos, and offer protagonists who can navigate those choppy waters to a happy ending. Revolves around a Special Defence Force team that are based out of Denver, love them. 3.
Romero climbed Denali at 11 and has bagged five of the Seven Summits. What could be the message? Longmire is a sharp-shooting, straightforward sheriff of yesteryear, but the crimes in this series are thoroughly modern and timely enough to warrant a Netflix adaptation of the same name. Her books take place in Vermont which definitely has a lot of wild mountain terrain. Hi Robyn — I just love all Nalini’s paranormal books. Cornwell’s Sharpe novels explore the land war against Napoleon from the point of view of Richard Sharpe, the low-born soldier who slowly rises through the ranks of the British Army. We’d highly recommend this book to your teen. $13.99. In this version of the past, everyone gets a happy ending. The stories in Adventure books are widely created as events or occurrences happening outside the course of the principal character’s life, typically associated with danger and frequently by intense physical activity like chases and mortal combat. I can’t wait to see how they end. Adventures are hard to come by when society is stable and peaceful—which makes the American Revolution a perfect backdrop for it. This is the granddaddy of adventure and survival stories.
Get your literary fix with Gillian Bagwell's thoroughly researched book, set in the court of the notorious King Henry VIII and based on a real woman. TV is teeming with romances set in Tudor England (like The Tudors and The Spanish Princess). I love Jane Harper so much — and have to echo another commenter that her stand-alone novel “The Lost Man” is excellent. When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can recall is his name. I LOVED The Mountain Between Us by Charles Martin!! Ruben Torres supports himself by writing cutting literary reviews (it's a bygone era).
You might not think a story centered on delivering the mail could possibly be fraught with adventure—which is why you must read this book. When I picked up The River by Peter Heller this spring, its premise brought to mind an adventure article in Outside magazine. I think Blood Lure, which takes place at Glacier National Park, is my favorite Anna Pigeon mystery. Dumas’ classic revenge story is also the ultimate adventure story, centered on a man who is wrongly imprisoned, escapes, makes a fortune, and seeks to get back at his enemies. Ten years after the Trojan War and the events of The Iliad, Odysseus still hasn’t found his way home. Sabatini understood one of the key ingredients to the classic adventure story: adaptability.
