  • Adrift: 76 Days Lost at Sea

    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.

    One of the rare audiobooks that I couldn't stop listening to. The details and story is what was missing from the other sailing books I've heard. The addition of the interview with the author was a great surprise.

    Overall

    A worthwhile escape onto a boat sailing across the world. Every time I stopped listening to this book, I couldn't wait to start listening again. You should definitely lookup some general sailing terms before listening as suggested in another review.

    Story

    In September 1870, Truman Everts was separated from one of the first exploratory parties in what is now Yellowstone National Park. With little food, equipment, or cold-weather clothing, Everts spent more than a month wandering the wilderness before two mountaineers found him alive: frostbitten, scalded, and delirious. Nobody else has been lost so long in Yellowstone and survived.

    Christopher says: "A very unfortunate series of events..."

    The narrators voice was a great cast. It felt as if Mr. Everts was telling me his story himself. If I ever make it to Yellowstone I will remember be more prepared that Mr. Everts was.

    Why not? After all, no one had ever done it before. It would be one of the longest of all overland journeys, from the English Channel to Singapore. Several expeditions had already tried. Some had got as far as the deserts of Persia; a few had even reached the plains of India. But no one had managed to go on from there, over the jungle-clad mountains of Assam and across northern Burma to Thailand and Malaya.

    James says: "Fascinating"
    "Thouroughly Enjoyable"
    Overall

    If you are into adventure stories and long drives, then this is a great listen. It actually makes me want to go out and drive.
