Naked and Marooned: One Man. One Island.

Ed Stafford


What do you do once 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 will best the intense feat he recounts in Walking the Amazon, Stafford makes a decision to maroon himself on an uninhabited island within the South Pacific. His project: to outlive for sixty days outfitted with nothing—no nutrients, water, or maybe 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 unprecedented event and of 1 man’s will to push himself to the outer limits—and continue to exist.
