About the Author:

Edward E. Leslie is the author of The Devil Knows How to Ride, a biography of the Civil War raider William Quantrill. He lives in Massillion, Ohio.

From AudioFile:

This long, rambling book is a cross between an anthology and an academic study of people marooned on desert islands and adrift in boats. It's not the sort of book one ordinarily reads straight through at a uniform pace, the mode imposed by an audiobook. The writing is clear, but not distinctive. It's sometimes hard for a listener to tell where frequent lengthy excerpts from historical documents begin and end. Patrick Cullen's reading is serviceable. His sound is undistinguished but comfortable, and he maintains a sense of focus and interest even when the text meanders. J.N. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
