About the Author

Joan Druett is a maritime historian and the award-winning author of several books, including Petticoat Whalers, She Was a Sister Sailor, Hen Frigates, Tupaia, and The Discovery of Tahiti. Her interest in maritime history began in 1984, when she discovered the grave of a young American whaling wife while exploring the tropical island of Rarotonga; she subsequently received a Fulbright fellowship to study whaling wives in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and California. Her ground-breaking work in the field of seafaring women was also recognized with a L. Byrne Waterman Award. She is married to Ron Druett, a maritime artist.

Reviews

"One of the finest survival stories I've read." --Seattle Times

"If the southern part of Auckland Island is all Robinson Crusoe, the northern part is more Lord of the Flies . . . Druett is an able and thorough guide . . . [She] shows that real leadership is rare and powerful." --The New York Times Book Review "Druett's well-researched account earns its place in any good collection of survival literature." --Entertainment Weekly "Those yearning for a classic man vs. nature, triumph-over-terrible-odds story, get ready to set sail." --Paste "Swashbuckling maritime history reanimated by a noted naval enthusiast . . . Druett excels at recreating the men's struggles and desperation (tempered by boundless hope)." --Kirkus Reviews "This is a fine addition to the genre of survival tales like Endurance or In the Heart of the Sea." --Publishers Weekly
