Survival against all odds
An extraordinary story of eight boys stranded on a rock in the middle of the sea, left to fight for their survival.
Every time a lad went fowling on the stacs, he came home less of a boy and more of a man. If he went home at all, that is.
Every summer Quill and his friends are put ashore on a remote sea stac to hunt birds. But this summer, no one arrives to take them home. Surely nothing but the end of the world can explain why they’ve been abandoned―cold, starving and clinging to life, in the grip of a murderous ocean. How will they survive such a forsaken place of stone and sea?
This is an extraordinary story of fortitude, endurance, tragedy and survival, set against an unforgettable backdrop of savage beauty.
“An epic, nearly mythic tale. McCaughrean takes the bones of a real event, wraps it in immersive, imaginative detail and thoroughly real emotion, and creates an unforgettable tale of human survival. A masterpiece.” ―Kirkus, starred review
“Harshly beautiful, and stark with near-despair, this is an unsettling, deeply original historical novel.” ―The Guardian
