Pilot Down, Presumed Dead by Marjorie Phleger is a wonder book.
The story goes that a man named Steve Ferris is a pilot who flies people from America to Mexico. On his way back to the states he gets caught in a terrible storm. He struggles with the plane’s controls and sees a tiny patch of land through the black rolling clouds.
He controls the plane just enough to land on the small beach. Once down on the patch of the sand he finds him stranded on a desert like island. With the help of a domesticated coyote, Steve survives with crude equipment he made from the materials on the island.
Through the entire book Steve struggles to survive and find a way to return to civilization. He feeds on fish, runs on sand, and drinks clean dew. Will he survive or will he be stuck on that island forever.
This book is a fantastic survival book that I encourage you to read. Although it is wonderful the book can be intense and hard to read kids younger than 4th grade. It is a great book and I hope you read it.
