Best seller in SHIPS


A nifty new cover and a daily deal have sent Island of the Lost zooming up the charts again.

Currently #80 on Amazon .... 

“A riveting study of the extremes of human nature and the effects of good (and bad) leadership.”—FLORENCE WILLIAMS, New York Times

“Depicted with consistent brio, stormy seas become epic events.”—Publishers Weekly

The finest survival stories combine struggle and endurance with an intellectual puzzle.  Cast onto a wild island, what would one do? … This is one of the finest survival stories I’ve read.—BRUCE RAMSEY, Seattle Times

“Druett’s well-researched account earns its place in any good collection of survival literature.”
  —WOOK KIM, Entertainment Weekly

“Engrossing and breathtaking historical work.”
  —MAE WOODS BELL, Rocky Mount Telegram, North Carolina

“Druett concludes this gripping tale with the future lives of the castaways … It’s a story to chill every sailor’s blood.  Highly recommended.”—ANN STINSON, Star Democrat, Maryland

Survival stories from earlier ages remain favorite fare, as is underscored by this amazing saga by an award-winning New Zealand maritime historian.—JOHN MARSHALL, The Berkshire Eagle, Massachusetts

Joan Druett has done a superb job of weaving together excellent research into a highly readable and fascinating account of survival and the sea … It is a fun read of an absorbing tale which, though a work of nonfiction, moves along at the pace of a good novel.—VICTOR SCHREFFLER, Good Old Boat

When does the deal end?  I have not a notion, but plenty of people are taking advantage of it, or so it seems.
