Outside Magazine's Ten Greatest Adventure Biographies

The reading and English teachers that I work with often mention how difficult it can be to get some male students interested in reading independently. So when I saw Outside Magazine's list of The 10 Greatest Adventure Biographies, I knew that I had to forward it on to them. I've read two of the books on the list, those about Tenzingand Mallory and can attest to their outstanding quality. If you have reluctant readers who are interested in outdoor adventure stories, this list might have some titles that will engage those students.
