My recommendation for this season: Desperate Journeys, Abandoned Souls; True Stories of Castaways and Other Survivors
This nonfiction compendium tells the stories of maroons and castaways from the 1500s to the present, with lengthy analysis of survivors ranging from psychoanalysis to providence. The book begins in 1540 with Pedro de Serrano's ship sinking off the coast of Peru; the Spaniard was washed ashore onto a small island wearing only basic underclothes and a knife, but this island had no trees or vegetation whatsoever - it was just a giant sandbar. How would survival be possible in the middle of the ocean with no land resources? Read and find out..
