About this title

Synopsis:

The Three Sailors chronicles the fictionalized retelling of one of the most arduous passages in history. After a massive storm in 1832, three men are stranded at sea on their broken ship for over four hundred days and hope for just two things-to survive their ordeal and to find safe passage home to Japan.

Left in the middle of the sea with not much else to eat but rice, teenage boys Oto and Kyu, and their older, spiritually strong helmsman, Iwa, are tossed from one ordeal to the next. As they travel from Japan to Vancouver to “Slave Island” and Macao, the three Japanese sailors battle not only the unpredictable elements, but also their failing spirits, slavery, and their own government officials. Sustained by eating seaweed and shellfish that miraculously adheres to the side of their ship, the three men soon realize that finding their way back home proves to be a more difficult and dangerous journey than any of them ever expected.

In this realistic seafaring saga that will engage history fans and adventure buffs alike, three brave sailors will come full circle and face their final fate.

From the Back Cover:

“Dramatic! Suspenseful! Fascinating!  Educational!”
    Jana

“The Three Sailors took me to a time and places that were new to me. For its historical and geographical content alone made it a great read. I have told the author I am looking forward to the movie made from this book.”
    Dr. Jerome Schonfeld

“How do three Japanese men survive over a year at sea in a badly damaged ship? The Three Sailors is an awe-inspiring story of resourcefulness, perseverance, faith, and the will to live.”
    Jill Burr, Librarian, Virginia Beach Public Library
