The Raft

By Robert Trumbull - Rating: 8/10

The harrowing true life account of three airmen who are adrift in a rubber raft for thirty-four days following an emergency landing in the Pacific Ocean. It’s written a blunt, mid-century pulp style very much befitting a Reader’s Digest book of the month from back in the 1940s (which it was). Short and to the point. Spoiler alert: includes details of their bowel movements on the twelfth day. For a much better and detailed lost at sea tale I would highly recommend Steve Callahan’s Adrift.
