Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Before The Perfect Storm, before In the Heart of the Sea, Steven Callahan’s dramatic tale of survival at sea was on the New York Times bestseller list for more than thirty-six weeks. In some ways the model for the new wave of adventure books, Adrift is an undeniable seafaring classic, a riveting firsthand account by the only man known to have survived more than a month alone at sea, fighting for his life in an inflatable raft after his small sloop capsized only six days out. “Utterly absorbing” (Newsweek), Adrift is a must-have for any adventure library.

Review:
A NEW YORK TIMES besteller, this true story tells the riveting, first-hand account of the only man in history to have survived more than a month alone at sea,fighting for his life in an inflatable raft after his small sloop capsized only six days out. Racked by hunger, buffeted by storms, and broiled by the tropical sun, Steven Callahan drifted over eighteen hundred miles of ocean, fighting off sharks with a makeshift spear, and watching nine ships pass by without turning back. Here is a story of anguish and horror, of undying heroism, hope--and survival.

Book Description: Mariner. 1 Paperback(s), 2000. soft. Book Condition: New. (Named one of the 100 Greatest Adventure Books of All Time by National Geographic Adventure) Marine architect, sailor, journalist, and artist Steven Callahan wrote this amazing account of his drifting across the Atlantic in a five-and-a-half-foot life raft, Rubber Ducky III. He had set sail in his sloop Napoleon Solo from the Canary Islands in January of 1982, bound for the Caribbean. Six days out the Solo sank, and Callahan grabbed the raft, his sleeping bag, a piece of the mainsail, and a small survival kit, along with three pounds of food and eight pints of water. These few preparations and his knowledge of the sea were all that saved him. He would drift for 76 days over 1800 miles of ocean before he reached land and rescue near Guadeloupe—the only person ever to survive more than a month alone at sea in a rubber raft. His story is illustrated with his own drawings and diagrams. 237. Bookseller Inventory # 43545
