ARIAS, Ron. Five Against the Sea : A True Story of Courage and Survival. New York : New American Library, (1989). First Printing. Pp. (10),1-226,(2) +8 p. of plates. 8vo, black cloth spine with black paper covered boards. 14 2 days lost at sea. "It was January 19, 1988. The waters were calm and the skies cloudless as five fishermen set off on a week-long trip along the Costa Rican coast. Five days later, their twenty-nine-foot wooden craft was foundering against thirty-foot waves as a dreaded north wind - El Norte - struck with full force, setting them adrift in the perilous waters of the Pacific. This was only the beginning of a five-month nightmare that would drivethe men to the very limits of human endurance - a terrifying odyssey that ended in June with a dramatic rescue at sea 550 miles southeast of Hawaii, a journey of 4,500 miles. This is the uncredible true story of survival against almost insurmountable odds. With no radio or navigational equipment, and only a makeshift spear for catching fish, the five men fought sesperate bouts of hunger and thirst, bailing night and day to keep their leaky vessel from gong under." - from the dj. Very good in dust jacket. 20.00
