Detailed Product Description
New York, 2001, 1st edition. 334 pp, photos. New paperback.

Building on the success of Adrenaline 2000, the first annual collection of the world's best adventure writing, Adrenaline 2001 continues to extend the Adrenaline brand with more gripping contemporary tales: Jeffrey Tayler (Facing the Congo) finds more than he bargained for on one of the Dark Continent's most dangerous waterways; Malika Oufkir and her siblings escape from a Morrocan jail after 15 years of wrongful imprisonment; Lynn Snowden Picket (Looking for a Fight) finds her own heart of darkness as an angry amateur boxer; Tom Clynes risks his own health to learn more about the Ebola virus, and Greg Child (Fear of Falling) encounters and unexpected challenge while climbing in Kyrgyzstan: terrorists. Like other Adrenaline titles, this one taps one of our greatest literary resources: exceptional human beings in extreme circumstances. 
 
from LIBRARY JOURNAL

This collection of adventure stories, the second in an annual series that brings together the world's best adventure writing, includes 17 tales describing a wide variety of adventure seekers, from doctors who risk their lives studying and fighting the Ebola virus in Africa to a boxer's emotionally risky first experience in a boxing ring. Other stories include people who escape confinement, a deceitful sailor who goes mad and dies at sea, and a biologist who walks across the Congo. The styles of writing differ greatly from story to story. Some are first-person narratives of modern-day adventures while others describe historical events, such as a World War II battle; some describe deeply emotional journeys, while others factually recount events. Writers include Peter Nichols, Greg Child, Jim Carrier, Ryszard Kapuscinski, and others. Since Adrenaline 2000 sold over 400,000 copies, this volume is guaranteed some readership
