Hell on High Seas
Publisher:HarperCollins Publishers (Australia) Pty Ltd
Hell on High Seas chronicles some of the most remarkable stories of survival and daring that the world's oceans have hosted over the past half century. Bizarre, unbelievable accounts of people who went missing and were given up for dead, only to miraculously reappear, apparition-like, months later. Amazing feats of daring on the high seas - some verging on madness, others where death is eluded through sheer courage, determination and innovation...or even divine intervention? Read about these astonishing accounts; Five Mexican fishermen went to sea for a three-day shark-fishing trip vanished and nine months later three of them reappeared; Maurice and Maralyn Bailey spent 117 days adrift in a rubber dinghy in the Pacific after their yacht was capsized by a whale; and Steve Callahan survived for 76 days in a rubber raft after his tiny, 6.5-metre long yacht sank while he was racing solo across the Atlantic.
