After their 43-foot schooner was stove in by a pod of killer whales, the Robertson family spent 37 days adrift in the Pacific. With no maps, compass, or navigational instruments, and rations for only three days, they used every survival technique they could as they battled 20-foot waves, marauding sharks, thirst, starvation, and exhaustion.

Shipwrecks have been a fact of life and death as long as men have sailed the oceans. The marine disasters that have occurred around Newfoundland's shores since John Cabot's time have been many; just how many may never be known. Recently, the late historian Keith Matthews and Captain Joe Prim estimated 10,000 to 15,000 vessels have been lost on or near Newfoundland and Labrador. Professor Thomas Nemec has focused on one area, the southern end of the Avalon Peninsula, and documented more than three hundred shipwrecks in that location.

Physiological constraints confine our bodies to less than one-fifth of the earth's surface. Beyond that fraction lie the extremes. What happens when we go to them? Dr. Kenneth Kamler has spent years observing exactly what happens. A vice president of the legendary Explorers Club, he has climbed, dived, sledded, floated, and trekked through some of the most treacherous and remote regions in the world. A consultant for NASA, Yale University, and the National Geographic Society, he has explored undersea caves, crossed the frozen Antarctic wastelands, and stitched a boy's hand back together while kneeling in knee-deep Amazonian mud. He was the only doctor on Everest during the tragic expedition documented in Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air and helped treat its survivors. Kamler has devoted his life to investigating how our bodies respond to "environmental insults"-a nice way of saying the things that can kill us-and watched while some succumbed to them and others, sometimes miraculously, overcome them. Words like "extreme" and "survival" have lost some of their value from overuse and media hype. By showing us what happens when life itself is at stake, and the body's capacities put to their greatest test, this book reminds us what they truly mean. Divided into six sections-jungle, open sea, desert, underwater, high altitude, and outer space-Surviving the Extremes uses first-hand testimony and documented accounts to illustrate what happens in environments where our instinctive survival strategies must become fully engaged. These stories reveal how infinitely complex are the workings of the human body-and also how heartbreakingly fragile. At the heart of this book is a quest for the source of our will to survive and the haunting question of why some can, and others cannot, summon its awesome and nearly mystical power at their moment of greatest need. Surgeon, explorer, and masterful storyteller, Kamler takes us to the farthest reaches of the earth as well as into the uncharted territory within the human brain. Surviving the Extremes is a scientific nail-biter no reader will forget.

From the author of Mayflower, Valiant Ambition, and In the Hurricane's Eye--the riveting bestseller tells the story of the true events that inspired Melville's Moby-Dick. Winner of the National Book Award, Nathaniel Philbrick's book is a fantastic saga of survival and adventure, steeped in the lore of whaling, with deep resonance in American literature and history. In 1820, the whaleship Essex was rammed and sunk by an angry sperm whale, leaving the desperate crew to drift for more than ninety days in three tiny boats. Nathaniel Philbrick uses little-known documents and vivid details about the Nantucket whaling tradition to reveal the chilling facts of this infamous maritime disaster. In the Heart of the Sea, recently adapted into a major feature film starring Chris Hemsworth, is a book for the ages.

On September 30, 1994, Louise Longo, Bernard and their six-year old daughter, Gaella, left Rochefort, a French port in the Atlantic, to go on a three week cruise. On the night of October 5, a storm started in the dangerous Bay of Biscay. In the breaking seas, Bernard was afraid the sailboat would sink and thought they would be safer in the liferaft. The Spanish coast was only 40 miles away, they would soon be rescued.But fate was against them. They had hardly any food, very little water. No boat appeared. Bernard, who had been hurt getting into the raft, died on the morning of October 11. For two weeks, Louise fought hunger, thirst and despair while trying to keep Gaella alive. Finally, on October 20, a Russian freighter spotted the raft. But the swell was too big. It was impossible to hoist them. The freighter left without them but called a helicopter. Louise did not know that rescue was coming. And it seemed that all hope left when the freighter abandoned them. Gaella gave up and closed her eyes. Only Louise survived.

Voyage in a Savage Sea is a brawny, salty, high seas adventure full of suspense, that reads like a thriller. When sea-hardened Nate Duggan is forced to escape the London authorities, he signs on as mate of the Brigantine Houndstooth, where he drives the ship and crew across three oceans to Australia's fledging penal colony at Sydney Cove. There 15 year old Jeremy comes aboard as a green, new hand. While trading in the Koro Sea, a violent storm and shipwreck throw Nate and the terrified young man together on a remote island in the Fijian chain. Hunted by cannibals who are led by a fierce, cunning savage-their gutsy struggle to survive is full of twists, turns and surprises. Feel the roll of the deck, the sting of the lash, and the cold fear of hunted prey as the story spreads like canvas in a gale; moving from the slums of 1806 London to England's harsh new penal colony in Australia, and on to the newly discovered, savage islands of the South Pacific. A fast paced page turner that you'll hate having to end.p>
