really liked it

An excellent book about real survivors on an uninhabitable island south of Australia. It was well narrated and extremely engrossing. The cover explains that it is a comparison of two ships that crash on the island during the same time, and is a comparison of leadership between the two different captains. It did not really deliver on that end, but I did find it amazing that one ship was able to keep their whole crew alive and what they were able build and make to keep themselves alive. We modern day people wouldn't even know where to begin--making soap out of seal oil??? Incredible, inspirational book.
