Description

Survivors provides a unique eye-witness record of some of the greatest feats of human endurance: being lost in a vast ocean in a small boat and overcoming the greatest of odds in the very harshest conditions. These extraordinary survival stories include that of Captain William Bligh who, following the infamous Bounty mutiny, successfully navigated 3600 miles in an open boat from the South Pacific to Timor. Ernest Shackleton who, after his ship was crushed by ice, battled unimaginable Antarctic storms and cold for sixteen days and nights to arrive on the wild and uninviting South Georgia Island. Plus Fred Rebell, who sailed from Sydney to California in a second-hand open boat using only the navigation skills he learned from books in Sydney Public Library and a pencil-drawn copy of a map from an out-of-date atlas.
