In 1989 the trimaran Rose Noelle set sail from New Zealand to Tonga with a four man crew on board. After a freak wave capsizes the boat and turns it upside down the men had to survive for 119 days before reaching the Great Barrier Reef. Abandoned tells a true story of courage and survival in some of the most hostile seas on the planet.
A family vacation becomes a game of survival! In this first entry to a new adventure series coauthored by Survivor host Probst, four kids are supposed to bond on a sailing trip as part of a newly blended family (Carter and Jane's mother has married Vanessa and Buzz's father). Instead, they end up on their own in the middle of the Pacific. Paperback, 208 pages.
