Haggard wrote the story very quickly after someone challenged him to write something as good as Treasure Island. Set in , the Great War is just days away and spies are on every corner. Forester is famous for his eternally popular Hornblower books but The Gun deserves to be reloaded. This is a romance I hear you say. Only first editions were printed.

Zanzibar Tales - FULL Audio Book - by George W. Bateman - African Adventure Stories

Sort of like Tombstone with thatched cottages. The book popularized the name, Lorna. This time Cornwall gets the criminal treatment. Wreckers abound. It is also a true story and, though sometimes difficult to read due to the sheer amount of natural torture Douglas Mawson had to endure in order to make it back to base, is an amazing book about survival and the triumph of the human spirit. Surfing is a beautiful, unforgiving, and complex sport.

Or lifestyle, depending on your level of dedication to it. So when we say that Barbarian Days is the epitome of surfing literature , we hope you fully understand what we mean. This is the definitive memoir on everything it is to be a surfer, not just on weekends or for an extended trip, but for life. Equal parts coming-of-age story and adventure tome, this one is not to be missed. This one will get a bump up on your list if you like dogs , as well. It follows an unnamed narrator as he travels through biblical Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise in search of his lost love and details all of the incredible and sometimes horrible things he sees along the way.

To paraphrase, space is the final frontier.

Popular Adventure Tales by Captain Mayne Reid - benohaderpha.ml

As such, anyone who has every journeyed into it can absolutely be labeled an adventurer. But perhaps none are more deserving of the title than American astronaut Scott Kelly. This autobiography details the entire experience and leaves nothing out — even unsettling stuff, like how such a long stint in space negatively impacts the human body. Yes, another true story titled Endurance. Though, this one is vastly different from the previous one, as it takes place here on Earth in the early s, during which Ernest Shackleton and his crew aboard the titular ship became stuck in Antarctic ice, forcing them to journey across the icy continent on foot.

This is a beautifully-penned account of everything, from horror to humanity, of Shackleton and crew and is a story with which we believe more people should be familiar. And that should be enough to instill confidence in you, as a reader. But this book is a little more special than his fictional exploits, as it details his real-life adventures across the Serengeti plains of Africa.

And it might go some way toward inspiring you to take your own adventure. Rare are the examples of coming-of-age stories that also pair well with the adventure genre. This one is perhaps the epitome of the mashup, however.

The world of Hatchet is certainly worth revisiting — or delving into for the first time. When a book inspires one of the greatest war films of all time, you can bet that the source material is just as formidable. Though much of the story and themes are similar, the original story actually takes place in Africa during the British colonization of Africa, rather than Vietnam.

The language is a little hard to trudge through, but anyone that puts in the time to read this book can count themselves better for it. In Sir Edmund Hillary became the first European to successfully ascend to the top of Mount Everest — thanks in no small part to his sherpa companion, Tenzing Norgay. Sometimes the greatest literary adventures begin in the most mundane ways. What begins as a simple walk through rural Pennsylvania turns into an epic of monumental proportions, including encounters with giants, demons, giant insects, and a profane crustacean.

Tolkien has written some extraordinary fantasy and adventure literature that has now become a very large part of popular culture and our collective consciousness. We posit, however, that the best of his work is also the simplest: The Hobbit. Rather, it was based on a true story of the whaleship Essex following a violent collision with a sperm whale.

For ninety days, the crew of the ill-fated vessel floated around the ocean in three tiny boats. Interestingly enough, though Mark Twain was absolutely a master of penning fictional tales, his best adventure story might actually be one that really happened to him.

This is that book. S, to and through Europe, and eventually to Bethlehem. This story is about an ill-fated trip up the side of Mount Everest. Lewis and Clark — and, perhaps even more importantly, Sacajawea — were single-handedly responsible for charting a good deal of the Louisiana Purchase and are therefore exceedingly important parts of American history at large. The story of that very expedition can be found in the pages of this book.

And it is as much an exciting adventure story as it is an illuminating look into what the American landscape was like before it was settled. Many of these novels were intended for children but, like so many good books, were also adored by adults. They are more super than Mario. Eagle of the Ninth Rosemary Sutcliff Find collectible copies Find all copies This adventure written for children set in Roman Britain left an indelible mark on my childhood. Rather like Kipling looking at the British living among the Indians, Sutcliff describes the Romans living among the barbarian British. The glory of Rome is far away.
