Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Lost in the Pacific is the first book in a narrative nonfiction series that tells the true story of a band of World War I soldiers who became stranded at sea and had to fight for survival.

World War I, October 1942: a plane carrying eight Americans crashes into the middle of the Pacific Ocean. With only four oranges and no fresh water between them, the crew had to band together and rely on each other for survival. What they thought would be only a few hours or days before they were rescued turned into weeks lost at sea fighting off sharks, dehydration, hunger, and extreme heat.

Lost in the Pacific vividly retells this incredible true story for a young audience and launches an exciting narrative nonfiction series: Lost. Featuring black and white photographs, maps, and diagrams that bring each story to life, Lost is the perfect nonfiction companion series for older fans of I Survived and other adventure stories.

   Interesting book
Then I received fairly quickly from Amazon. This book is likely better suited for a teenager reader, but is never the less excellent. It gives some interesting information about what Paul was going through with James C. Whittaker and Johnny Bartek.
   Exciting nonfiction
I teach reading classes, so ordered a textbook set for my students. Though many of my students are reluctant readers, they loved it! I did too, mainly because this non-fiction book deals with history and is so well written. The author characterized the situation and the characters so well that my kiddos came to class anxious to read the next installment in this story. It was so well received that the other Reading - teacher purchased a number of books in my building. Win the game!
   Good survival book
This is the older version of the I Survived books for children. When a plane goes down, the survivors must come together and survive extreme circumstances. After the first 20 pages of the introductions, my son really enjoyed reading this story. I would recommend this book to children who like survival books.
   My 11 year old loved this book
He told me everything about it. It is a graphic book and it is not too survivalist. It is perfect for his age.
   Firsthand nonfiction worth a read
This was summer reading for my rising middle schooler, so I purchased the ebook for my kindle. Having lived in Columbus, Ohio for several years, I had heard about Rickenbacker, but never his full story. This book filled in some blanks and introduced me to his fellow Castaways. I have never been enamoured with war, but will read more now. I think I also benefited from the required summer reading list.
