What's the most hair-raising outdoor adventure you can imagine? Being mauled by a bear? Chased by a gator? Engulfed in a deadly fireball? Well, Outdoor Life's readers have experienced all of this and more...and lived to tell the tale. In the 100+ thrilling tales within, real-life hunters, fishermen, hikers, and axe-wielding housewives take on the worst that nature has to offer—and triumph. Amazing art created by top comic artists bring every scenario to life, frame by heart-pumping frame.

Blood-dripping fangs, man-eating sharks, gun-toting bad guys and relentless tornados are just the beginning. This book collects the best of Outdoor Life ’s reader-submitted death-defying adventures and adds some new illustrations never before published anywhere else. Is every word of this true? How could you possibly doubt the stories of a man who punched a bloodthirsty bear in the face, or a woman who saved her baby from a vicious snake with a lasso and an axe?

If you’ve ever wondered what might happen if you strayed off the trail, dove into shark-infested waters, blew up your campsite, or had to ride out a monsoon in a rowboat, this book shows you in absolutely fantastic detail.

// This Hapened To Me
When Suddenly…
Those o us who spend our lives outdoors, with a rie or a shingrod in our hands or a thin tent over our heads, are never more thana step or two away rom calamity, whether rom a hissing snake, acharging moose, a slip on an icy slope, or a gash o lightning.Most o us understand that danger is as much a part o oureld sports as woodsmoke and gun oil. Maybe that’s why

s distillation o the most harrowing true-lie disaster tales istraditionally the rst eature that readers turn to.“This Happened To Me,” a xture o 
Outdoor Life
since 1940, isreal enough that we can recognize ourselves in each illustration. Itis dramatic enough that we read it with silent thanks that it
didn’t 
 happen to us—and sober acknowledgement that it could have. Andit is accessible enough—rendered in an adrenaline-pumping styleand bold colors conveying a simple, rst person narrative—that itappeals to anyone who ever cracked a comic book. Or ought of ahungry gator with a boat paddle.I was reminded o the timeless appeal o “THTM” earlier thisyear. For once, I was in the right place at the right time as a ock o big Canada geese ew of the Missouri River. A honker ew rightover me, and with a single well-placed shot, I olded that bird, thenswung to complete a rare double. The next thing I knew, I was onmy back in the snow, bleeding hard rom my head, a dead goose inmy lap. I had been cold-cocked by the rst goose, which slammedinto my skull with a combination o dead weight and gravity’s pull.My rst thought, as I collected my wits—and my birds—wasn’tthat I might have a concussion. It was that my experience wouldmake a great “THTM” installment!—Andrew McKean, Editor
