The beloved Texan author of this 1970 novel makes listeners smile at his Robinson Crusoe tale of a WWII pilot downed on a deserted Pacific island. Only a writer with these sensibilities could draw out so many facets of what it means to be human in such a stark place. Beyond the tale of survival, the story also expresses one man's effort to put himself in perspective, to comprehend the omnipotence of God, and to maintain the resourcefulness he needs to live each day. Scott Shina's narration reveals a satisfying combination of youthful energy, alertness to the story line, and consciousness of the spiritual themes in the material.
