Sole survivor [the true account of 133 days adrift] by Ruthanne Lum McCunn( )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On November 23, 1942, German U-Boats torpedoed the British ship Benlomond, and it sank in the Atlantic in two minutes. The sole survivor was a second steward named Poon Lim, who, with no knowledge of the sea, managed to stay alive for 133 days on a small wooden raft. Sole Survivor, based on three years of interviews with Poon, reconstructs his remarkable ordeal. We learn of a ship's crew that saw him but refused to pick him up; his ingenious ways of trapping water and catching fish (later used in U.S. Navy training films); his reaching land, only to find it an impenetrable jungle. When he was finally rescued at the mouth of the Amazon River, Poon was hailed as the "World's Champion Survivor." He still holds the Guinness world record for survival at sea. His story is an amazing tale of a young man's fortitude in the face of overwhelming odds

The innocent but keen-witted Charlotte quickly finds herself rather deeply involved in this uproarious little town. She can't help but get swept up in the antics of the Parkers and Denhams, even while she is vexed and perplexed by the droll Sidney Parker. But even the best efforts of this charming young lady may not be enough to save the budding resort town
La vagabonde by Colette( )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and French and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Largely autobiographical, La Vagabonde recalls Colette's own years as a dance-hall performer in turn-of-the-century Paris, where she takes the listener backstage and into the demimonde of RenTe NTrT, an aging dancer, mime, and failed writer. Successfully evoking the excitement-the sounds, smells, tastes, textures, and colors of the Parisian dance-hall-RenTe describes her romance with admirer, maxime, and the downward slide of a young Piaf-type singer named Jadin. Listeners will see the perspective of a woman who struggles to choose between freedom and love. The story is told in a sultry, passionate, and intelligent voice. La Vagabonde contains all that is best in Colette: wisdom, vitality, and her astute observations on art, pleasure and l'amour
