Product Description

Victor Slocum spent most of his life indirectly researching this book - first as a boy at sea with his famous father, Joshua, and later as a captain in charge of his own ship. Over the course of several decades, Victor accumulated countless incredible stories, many of which are now collected here.

In Castaway Boats, he presents thrilling, intimate tales of wrecked vessels and stalwart survivors, each brimming with historical nuances and meticulous attention to detail. Included among the stories are Shackleton's icy ordeal, the fated crew of the whaleboat Essex, and Joshua Slocum's account of the Easter Island castaways.

'an amazing selection of true stories ... that will linger in the mind long after the book has been concluded and set back on the shelf.'
- Midwest Book Review

'Fascinating reading from the start.'
- Latitudes & Attitudes

'a compelling account'
- Charleston Daily News
