Steven Callahan

Often wet, cold or overheated, always starving thirsty or scared, with sores and ulcers plaguing him, and never-ending attacks by the bumping dorados, Callahan continues his daily routines amidst unbelievably harsh conditions for 76 long days.

Going solo: A book review of ‘Adrift,’ by Steven Callahan
