Details

In 1741, with Britain at war with Spain, HMS Wager was wrecked on an uninhabited island off the coast of Chile. Drawing on survivors’ accounts, this book tells the story of the 36 men, led by Gunner Bulkeley, who mutinied and set off in an open boat with no chart. Their 2,500-mile journey to Brazil, through some of the world’s most dangerous seas, was an epic feat of navigation and survival.
