ADEN 1286 Creative Non-Fiction (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

Adventure stories always capture our imagination–narratives of travel to exotic lands, battles with monsters, quests for treasure, the rescues of fair maidens and extreme experiences. Adventure means travel and quests as it intersects with technology, clashes with the forces of nature, sparks political intrigue and prompts growth and change for all who reach for the challenge. Texts include Junger’s The Perfect Storm, Erdrich’s, Books and Islands in Ojibwe Country, Shakespeare’s Four Great Tragedies, Hillenbrand’s Unbroken, Erik Weihenmayer’s Touch the Top of the World, and that classic twentieth-century adventure story, Jaws.
