We'd like you to do it again.These phrases, spoken to Brian Robeson, will swap his lifestyles. years previous, Brian was once stranded by myself within the desert for fifty-four days with not anything yet a small hatchet. but he survived. Now the govt desires him to do it again--to return into the desert in order that astronauts and the army can examine the survival options that saved Brian alive.This time he will not be by myself: Derek Holtzer, a central authority psychologist, will accompany him to monitor and take notes. yet in the course of a freak hurricane, Derek is hit by means of lightning and falls right into a coma. Their radio transmitter is useless. Brian is afraid that derek will die of dehydration except he can get him to a physician. His basically desire is to construct a raft and check out to move Derek 100 miles down the river to a buying and selling post--if the map he has is actual.
