Great list! My favorite survival story is Between a Rock and a Hard Place by Aron Ralston. A movie based on the book comes out this week. It's called 172 Hours and it's getting great reviews.

Oops, I typed too fast. The movie is entitled 127 Hours not 172 Hours. His ordeal was awful but not quite THAT long.
