A group of children is sent to Assateague Island and must complete a mission before being carried back home in the children's chapter book, Surviving Horse Island by Karl Steam. Josh, Tyler, Melisa, and Katie have been transported to a lonely island on another nature assignment. This time, they have been left on an island surrounded by feral horses. After their last adventure in the desert when Tyler got dehydrated, Melisa is concerned about the safety of the group. Sadly, no one else feels the same. Katie is excited to be on the beach and immediately sets out to scour the sand for unique shells. Tyler finds dinner, and Josh prevents the group from arguing. As the sun begins to set, one of the kids separates from the group. Can they convince the errant preteen to come back before dark? Will the kids be able to make it home before danger strikes again?

Surviving Horse Island by Karl Steam is the third book in the Kids vs. Nature series. Josh, Melisa, Katie, and Tyler are on a third mission; this time, they have traveled to an island of wild horses. Any middle-grade reader will be pleased to discover how feral horses act in their natural habitat and how they survive on an island surrounded by sea water and swamps. They can learn how to make fresh water from salty ocean water and create a boiled crab dinner. With compelling characters - kids that are learning survival techniques on the fly - and exciting, adult-free adventures, what child wouldn't love to read this educational and fun series?
