Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Ten daring treks across land, sea and air.

What makes people attempt a dangerous journey? For some, it's a thirst for adventure. For others, it's a quest for freedom. And for still others, it's simply a desire to go home.

In 1931, three Australian girls escaped from a government settlement for mixed-race children. Together they walked a thousand miles, including a trek across the merciless Gibson Desert, to return to their aboriginal home.

In 1849, slave Henry Brown hatched a plan to reach freedom in the north. With the help of friends, he shipped himself in a crate from Richmond to Philadelphia, a 27-hour journey.

Famous British explorer Dr. David Livingstone spent more than 30 years in Africa. When he died in 1873, his loyal guides carried his salted, dried body across more than 1,500 miles of treacherous African terrain, so he could be shipped to Britain for burial.

Journey into Dangerous Crossings! and join voyagers from the determined to the desperate as they struggle though icy oceans, across hostile borders, and into unforgiving wilderness. You'll witness record-breaking solo flights, harrowing escapes from oppression, and unbelievable ocean crossings.

The latest in the award-winning True Stories from the Edge series, these 10 amazing stories make Dangerous Crossings! an unforgettable trip.
