What an amazing story!The suffering, hard work, and resourcefulness of the Grafton shipwreck survivors was incredible. Perhaps the Invercauld survivors should have done better, but no one knows how they will react in such a situation. The Grafton survivors also had their ship close at hand to take supplies from and they did not arrive in frigid temperatures.
Joan Druett did a wonderful job in bringing the survival stories to life. This book is definitely a page-turner and I stayed up till midnight to prove it! Joan Druett is an award-winning maritime historian and I can see how she earned that distinction. I am looking forward to reading more of her works.
