Adrift: A True Story of Love, Loss, and Survival at Sea
by Ashcroft, Tami Oldham with Susea Mcgearhart
A harrowing true story of survival at sea. In 1983, Ashcroft (then 23) spent 41 days alone on a 44-foot yawl after her partner was swept overboard and lost during a hurricane in the South Pacific. Her story was originally published in 2003 as "Red Sky in Mourning"; re-issued and renamed to coincide with a 2018 feature film.
