In June 1972, the 43-foor schooner Lucette was attacked by killer whales and sank in 60 seconds.

What happened next is almost incredible. In an inflatable rubber raft, with a 9 foot fiberglass dinghy to tow it, Dougal Robertson and his family were miles from any shipping lanes.

They had emergency rations for only three days and no maps, compass, or instruments of any kind.

After their raft sank under them, they crammed themselves into their tiny dinghy. For 37 days-using every technique of survival-they battled against 20-foot waves, marauding sharks, thirst, starvation, and exhaustion, adrift in the vast reaches of the Pacific before their ordeal was ended by a Japanese fishing boat.

The Robertsons' strong determination shines through the pages of this extraordinary book which describes movingly their daily hopes and fears, crises and triumphs, tensions and heartbreaks.
