Are you sure you want to Yes No. The pile of chips now stands as tall as a man and as big around as a raft. Somebody is going to win soon. Yet, depite the terrible privations he experiences on the sea, Callahan also experiences moments of profound solace: I see that all creation is made in His image. It will remind him that " Being an avid reader of ship wreck stories and Polar expeditions I was unsure whether I would like this book. Most of these types of books that involve disaster are usually followed with a few good times had by all before the worst occurs.

This concerned me because it was a solo disaster and on a rubber survival raft at that. I was fairly certain he would be miserable the entire time and this create a very sad read indeed without the occasional comic relief found in group settings. Well, I was very pleasantly surprised, it turned out to be a great book!

Yes, there were many horrific days for the poor soul during his 76 day survival story, but more than once he recalls feeling rich when blessed with fish to eat, water to drink, and the sun to dry his body and surroundings. Other times, he describes stroking the backs of the fish that follow him and his attitude remains strong during the majority of his voyage.

I like this about him and respect his fortitude. There are definitely some dark days for him, as would be expected.

Overall, this book delivered more than I had imagined. Highly recommended! If you enjoy lifeboat tales then this true story is among the best. I finished it in three sittings.

The author describes his desperate escape from his sinking boat and his long and painful journey in a life raft.

Getting noticed by a passing freighter is not as likely as it seems! He includes drawings and descriptions of the various repairs and adaptations that enabled him to survive.

I appreciate that the site version included the drawings though they were a little hard to make out. He also describes how he navigated, as well as his physical condition which became very bad from starvation and the constant exposure to salt water.

Glad to know that Steven Callahan continues to write about sailing, and that he was a consultant for the film version of Life of Pi. I really appreciated this book. After sailing and then building my own boat I decided not to cruise.

Before finishing my boat I helped deliver a large catamaran from the eastern Carribean to southern California. With that experience under my belt the thought of single handing scared the he'll out of me. Being at sea sometimes you feel like there is no place you would rather be and other times your fear can be so great you do not think you will see another sunrise. Things can go wrong and multiply so quickly. I am sure that scouting, building experience, and a strong desire to live and not give up helped bring Steven Callahan through.

I do not have that kind of skill or confidence in myself. I would recommend this book to anyone especially those who think nothing will go wrong or that they are invincible.
