Adrift: Sailing, Survival & the Human Spirit

Apr 20, 2017

Author Steven Callahan was six days into a voyage across the Atlantic when his small sloop was destroyed in heavy storms.  The Maine native scrabbled onto an inflatable raft and began a journey covering more than 1,800 miles before he was found seventy-six days later.  His account, in  Adrift, is as much about the human spirit as it is about survival.   Friday, April 21, 2017,  is the 35th anniversary of his rescue.
