Description

Near-death adventures are part of the thrill of traveling - aren't they? Maybe thrill isn't quite the word, but they're there whether you like them or not. This collection of near-death (and a few almost-near-death) stories take you on adventures in Africa, South America, Nepal, Japan and Thailand.

Close Encounters with an angry snake, the edge of an abyss, an unfriendly African tribe, a fake guide or two, a mean Dutch man, a nasty case of Typhoid and a severe case of mountain stupidity are told with the confidence of a traveler who has discovered that "no matter what happens, something always turns up."
