Before The Perfect Storm, before In the Heart of the Sea, Steven Callahan’s Adrift chronicled one of the most astounding voyages of the century and one of the great sea adventures of all time. In some ways the model for the new wave of adventure books, Adrift is now an undeniable seafaring classic, a riveting firsthand account by the only man known to have survived for more than a month alone at sea, fighting for his life in an inflatable raft after his small sloop capsized only six days from port. Racked by hunger, buffeted by storms, scorched by the tropical sun, Callahan drifted for 1,800 miles, fighting off sharks with a makeshift spear and watching as nine ships passed him by. “A real human drama that delves deeply into man’s survival instincts” (Library Journal), Adrift is a story of anguish and horror, of undying heroism, hope, and survival, and a must-read for any adventure lover. “An utterly absorbing saga.” - Newsweek “Fascinating…a clearly written ocean yarn in which the stakes are high and a brave man wins through.” - Wall Street Journal

    " True story of a man that survived 76 days lost at sea in a raft. Fascinating, and more than anything if you're like me you'll think again and again that there is no way in hell almost anyone else could've survived it. Steve is a boat builder, after all, so has some sea skills and some boat handyman skills that most of us don't have. Reminds you how big the sea really is, and that the idea of search and rescue only applies to a very small section of coastline. I found it very very interesting. "

    " Wrenching tale of survival and the power of the human mind. This book will always be with me. Hard to find now, but well worth the search. "

    " The first of the 'raft' genre. I read and re-read this book as a youngster. "

    " An outstanding book! One man's survival at sea, in an inflatable life-raft...which starts to leak. Learn about how he catches huge fish, makes drinking water, fends off sharks, and ultimately touches the spirit of human existence. Extraordinary. And it's all true. "
