Adrift: 76 Days Lost At Sea. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Jump to navigation Jump to search. Adrift: 76 Days Lost At Sea is a memoir by Steven Callahan about his survival alone in a life raft in the Atlantic Ocean, which lasted 76 days. Adrift is quite an entertaining horror story which whilst not completely gripping did hold my attention particularly in the latter part of the book. I would go along with the reviewer who thought it somewhat silly just because it's hard to imagine a major cruise ship going completely silent with out someone coming to find out what's going on/5().   Adrift is the story of Tami’s miraculous forty-one-day journey to safety on a ravaged boat with no motor and no masts, and with little hope for rescue. It’s a tale of love and survival on the high seas-- an unforgettable story about resilience of the human spirit, and the transcendent power of love.   The movie is based on the true story - taken from the book Oldham wrote years afterwards called Red Sky in Mourning: A True Story of Love, Loss and Survival at : Jo-Anne Rowney.
