In a superb narrative, NY Times best-selling author Callahan chronicles the four-month (April - August 1989) struggle of Jim Nalepka and three other crew (Phil Hofman, John Glennie and Rick Hellriegel) to survive on their capsized trimaran adrift in the the stormy seas of the wintry South Pacific.
For shelter, the four huddled together in a dank hull compartment 20 inches high and only as wide as a double-bed. Most of their gear was lost in the same gale that caused them to capsize. They were drenched nearly constantly with frigid seawater, and caught fish and collected rain for sustenance before the wind and current finally carried them to New Zealand's Great Barrier Island.
