Have you ever read a story about someone being shipwrecked?  Being a castaway?  These stories are fascinating to think about.  What might it be like to be the sole survivor of a shipwreck?  Castaways is a collection of six stories about castaways.  Although the stories are fiction, they are based on real life events.  The author tells about the "real" stories at the end of the book.  So, sit back and read about the man who lost his mind in isolation.  Or the man who lived on turtle blood.  Or the fabled skunk ape of the Everglades!
SUBJECTS:     Castaways.
                        Short stories.
