This is an astonishing tale of survival; a poignant Robinson Crusoe story, based on true events. When Seth and his dog, Tucker, are washed overboard from his father's fishing boat during a torrential storm, they are assumed drowned. But by good fortune, Seth and Tucker make it safely to one of the hundreds of islands that line the Alaskan coast. Over many months, the boy and his dog make their way, island by island, towards home, while Seth's desperate father never gives up hope. Along the way, Seth learns many hard lessons about survival, and even harder lessons about himself.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"With more psychological depth than Robinson Crusoe." -- Frank McCourt
"Excellent...delves deeper into its themes of survival and endurance than his previous novel The Great Death, delivering a stark and profound tale. The spare and evocative writing pays a great respect to the immense power of the elements and offers a fascinating insight into the lives of indigenous Alaskan Natives." * The Bookseller *
"This is a tale of triumph in the face of adversity. Nail-biting Ray Mears style tale of survival set in the wilds of Alaska." -- Ruth Ng * The Bookbag *
"A short, powerful and highly readable novella that grips you tight and doesn't let you go." -- Lindsey Stainer * The Bookseller, Children's Buyers Guide *
"An epic story inspired by a sense of wonder and respect for the natural world." * The School Librarian *
