Castaway: The Diary of Samuel Abraham Clark, Disappointment Island, 1907 (My NZ Story)

Author(s): Bill O'Brien


Sam is 14 when he signs on as a cabin boy aboard a vessel bound for Sydney. The barque Dundonald founders and sinks off Disappointment Island in the southern ocean. Fifteen survivors endure a harsh winter on this remote island until their rescue in late November. 6 March 2007 marks 100 years since the wreck of the Dundonald, and this incredible story of survival. Although Sam is a fictional character, the other survivors are all based on the real people.
