What do you do when you stroll the Amazon?
Ed Stafford—adventurer extraordinaire and Guinness international list holder for jogging the size of the Amazon River—likes a problem. Casting approximately for an event that might best the extreme feat he recounts in Walking the Amazon, Stafford makes a decision to maroon himself on an uninhabited island within the South Pacific. His challenge: to outlive for sixty days outfitted with nothing—no meals, water, or perhaps clothing—except the video cameras he could use to record his time. Detailing Stafford’s jaw-dropping sojourn at the island of Olourua, Naked and Marooned is a story of remarkable experience and of 1 man’s will to push himself to the outer limits—and continue to exist.
