Adrift: Seventy-Six Days Lost at Sea


When Callahan's small sloop sank west of the Canary Islands, he found himself adrift in the Atlantic in a five-foot raft, with only enough food and water for 18 days. For 76 days he drifted 1800 miles, the only man in history to survive more than a month alone at sea in an inflatable raft. Hide synopsis

Wow! What a story!

by yuktimon on Jun 7, 2007

It's hard to imagine anyone not enjoying this adventure/character study of a man set adrift in his little rubber life raft after the sinking of his boat out in the middle of the nowhere. It's one of those page turner type books where you can't wait to hear what happens next. If you need to get a good nights rest, don't start this book late in the evening! The book offers much more than a survival story. It takes you into the inner reaches of the human mind and emotions. It helps one to appriciate the relative calm of our circumstances by comparison. For example, I learned to really appriciate the value of rain/water after reading how precious it is when you are faced with not having it. Everyone I've lent this book to has enjoyed and benefited from it's reading. It has the power to change the way you look at the world both within and without. Why they haven't made it into a movie is beyond me. A must read! Highly recommended!
