In March 1973 in the Pacific Ocean, Maralyn and Maurice Bailey were awakened in their small sloop, by terrifying noises: they were being attacked by a wounded sperm whale. Within an hour their beloved craft had sunk, and they were left with the few meagre stores they had salvaged - and their own courage.For 118 days they lived like sea animals, outwitting death at every turn. During the darkest hours they sustained themselves with the dream of a new boat and the marvellous voyages they would make in it.They survived their ordeal and turned their dream into reality. This is their story of that courageous return to a world that had come so close to destroying them.Illustrated with B&W photographs.
