On November 17, 2012, Salvador Alvarenga left the coast of Mexico for a two-day fishing trip. A vicious storm killed his engine and the current dragged his boat out to sea. The storm picked up and blasted him west. When he washed ashore on January 29, 2014, he had arrived in the Marshall Islands, 9,000 miles away, equivalent to traveling from New York to Moscow round trip.

The narrator was very good, the true account of this drift is monumental. This is a fully packed telling, often hard to believe what this man did to survive & the toll it took on his body. Having read numerous other accounts of men left adrift during war times, this adds a whole new dimension to survival at sea. I cannot help but wonder how this man is today.
