"in April 2013, a breaking news story surfaced on social media and quickly gathered momentum: a South African man had fallen overboard in a storm in remote Indonesian waters without anyone else on board realising. Now a frantic search was underway. The incident caught the world's attention because readers instantly recognised the terror of the moment--imagine being left alone drifting at sea and watching your friends sail into the distance. With just a little more bad luck, Brett Archibald could have died immediately. According to the experts, he should have died within eight to ten hours. But he chose not to die. Instead, Brett endured the ocean, the elements, the creatures of the deep, and his own inner demons. Alone is the incredible tale of what it takes to defy needle-in-a-haystack odds and survive what should have been certain death: outdoor savvy, astonishing mental toughness, a refusal to give up hope, a canny rescuer with an unbelievable background, and a comprehension of the human spirit that defies rational explanation."--Back cover.
