In 1920 three American navy officers were on a routine practice run by balloon. A sudden storm hit sending them drastically off course. Subsequent actions to avoid a crash led them even further north into the snowy Canadian wilderness. Each man uses his strengths to encourage the others’ weaknesses. Kloor is the youngest, the most fit, and the best trained balloonist. Farrell is the oldest and least athletic and least experienced in flight. Hinton has no particular balloon talent, but is wise and committed to his teammates. Together these three persevere desperately to escape the frozen wilderness.
Publisher Summary
Are you ready for some of the most exciting, death-defying escape stories ever told? The fourth installment in the Great Escapes series is here--perfect for fans of the I Survived series!

December 13, 1920. It was a typical Monday morning when three US Navy officials boarded a hot air balloon for an easy, routine training flight. But as evening came, heavy rain and wind knocked Lieutenants Louis Kloor, Stephen Farrell, and Walter Hinton off course, eventually forcing a crash landing deep within the snowy Canadian wilderness.

As the men searched for salvation, they were overcome by freezing temperatures, starvation, and fatigue. To survive this harrowing experience, the brave military officers would have to go up against their greatest enemies yet--desperation and despair.

From reluctant reader to total bookworm, each book in this page-turning series--featuring fascinating bonus content and captivating illustrations--will leave you excited for the next adventure!
