An excellent read, and even more impressive as its a true story. Sometimes the truth is better than fiction, as in this case.

An excellent short story of a seaman saved by fortune and blessed by providence with provisions to sustain him through his time upon an island. Well done!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting January 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very short and thus low on in-depth details, but a fascinating story. If true, it may have been the inspiration for Robinson Crusoe.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lacking in details
This is a very short story and priced accordingly. However, the lack of details almost makes it worthless. OK, but not a story that will move you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good short story
Good short story but needed more detail on Daniel's day to day survival and what kept him going. Would have liked an exact location of the island.

Some details would have been appreciated. Only he survived. Why? Those that died early on.... Why? What did they die of? Where did this happen specificly?

Interesting story, but I didn't think it was particularly well written. Also missing a lot of detail that could have been included, even if tho it is a short story.
