Summary
A native Mainer, Kenneth Roberts (1885-1957), whose historical novels include Northwest Passage and Arundel, was intrigued by the story of the December 1710 wreck of the Nottingham. Using facts from this actual tragedy, Roberts drew his classic tale of shipwreck and survival. After running aground a dozen miles offshore, the ship broke up, stranding her crew with minimal tools, scant shelter, and a few pieces of cheese. The men survived nearly a month of screeching gales, sub-freezing temperatures, and driving snowstorms. During their ordeal they resorted to cannibalism and were finally rescued after one of them made it ashore on a crude raft. A bestseller when published in 1956, Boon Island is a story of the ways that crisis can inspire the best—and worst—in human nature
