Product description

Review

"Could rank alongside the best thrillers for sheer irrepressibility of its hero . . . . The book is utterly compelling, a testament to man's determination to survive when most of us would have given up . . . . You'll find it hard to put this one down."

"Desperate to be reunited with his wife in Sidney, John Caldwell sailed alone from Panama with less experience than Tanya Aebi had in Maiden Voyage. Desperate Voyage is his true story of shipwreck and survival, eating Vaseline and drinking the liquid in his compass until he was washed ashore and rescued." -- Sailing "Sailing"

About the Author

John Caldwell went on to graduate from the University of California Santa Barbara. He sailed all over the world with his wife Mary and their two sons. While sailing in the Caribbean he caught a glimpse of his dream island, Prune Island. He obtained a 99-year lease on the island, planted palms, renamed it Palm Island and established his own resort. The rest of his life was spent sailing around the islands he loved and sharing his passion with lucky visitors to his Caribbean paradise.
