An Island to Oneself Sounds Fantastic

I regularly have desert island fantasies. Some of them don’t even feature Rachel McAdams.

What I mean is that I enjoy films and literature about surviving in remote places (see, for example, Survivorman). Via Boing Boing, I read Mark’s brief review of An Island to Oneself, an account of spending six years on a desert island:

Neale eked subsistence out of a garden and by fishing, and carefully used his supplies of spices and tea (he used the leaves over and over again). He had zero contact with the outside world, and since Suwarrow wasn’t in a shipping lane, visitors were very rare.

You can buy the book from Amazon or read it online for free.
