Naked And Marooned: One Man. One Island by Ed Stafford (Plume 2014)
After his stint as the first person to walk the length of the Amazon, British adventurer Ed Stafford set himself a new challenge: spend sixty days alone and without clothing or tools on an uninhabited island in the South Pacific. Dropped on an island with nothing but video cameras, Stafford’s first priorities were to secure a form of covering to prevent sunburn and ensure he had access to a fresh water supply. His recordings were turned into a successful series for The Discovery Channel. NAKED AND MAROONED is an account of how he survived and the emotional and psychological tolls of the experiment.
