Abstract:

Explorer Ben Cropp goes in search of shipwrecks in the Torres Strait to help tell the dramatic story of cast away's fate as they arrived on land inhabited by cannibals and headhunters, earning it the well-deserved title of the Strait of Terror. Survivors of these shipwrecks had a terrible time running the gauntlet of these headhunters, and many castaways were slaughtered, prompting one stretch of land to become known as Skull Island. Aside from exploring the myths and legends that surrounded the cast aways, Cropp delves deep underwater to uncover the remains of many of these ill-fated shipwrecks, as well as examining the various creatures that inhabit the Strait islands.
