Jonathan Franklin

438 Days is my latest book. I spent the past year interviewing fisherman Salvador Alvarenga and diving deep into the world of extreme survival. At first it seemed impossible. How could someone live 14 months at sea? Only Hollywood could have an ending like this where a single man drifts for 6,000 miles and survives on his wits, humor and resourcefulness. But it's true, he lived for over a year in a tiny boat, adrift in the Pacific. This is a daring, bold tale that has made me appreciative of the simple pleasures in life.
