Adrift: Seventy-six Days Lost at Sea

Book Description
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 seventy-six days he drifted 1800 miles, the only man in history to survive more than a month alone at sea in an inflatable raft. He recounts his problems surviving the weather, shark attacks, raft leaks, and food and water shortages.

About the Author
Steven Callahan is probably best known for completing an Atlantic crossing after losing his boat mid-ocean in 1982, a voyage he chronicled in Adrift. From the time he was a kid, he was addicted to the water and boats, and by age 10 was whacking together barges using old roofing boards. He taught himself the basics of boat design and celestial navigation, and helped build a 40 footer prior to graduating high school. As an adult, he has spent more than 40 years in the marine and communications trades, first building boats, then designing and teaching design, as well as living aboard, racing, doing boat deliveries, writing, illustrating, and doing photography. He resides with his wife in Maine where they enjoy living close to nature.
