How did he get there? What happened while he was there? How long was he there? How did he get back?
This Caper tells the survival story of Captain Guy Asbury, perhaps the only mariner to spend days and nights precariously perched on a dead whale.
He was surrounded by screaming seagulls (“flying rats”), crabs (which he ate as they tried to eat him), sharks (taking giant mouthfuls of blubber) and a choking stench, all in thick fog.
Can anyone find the likes of this in the entire marine literature? If so, please let us know.
