10 Books I'd Want With Me on a Deserted Island

101 Ways to Get off a Deserted Island

The Shadowy Horses by Susanna Kearsley

Mariana by Susanna Kearsley

Ashes in the Wind by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss

The Mallory novels by Johanna Lindsey

Braveheart by Randall Wallace (Read by Gerry)

The collected works of Jane Austen

Princes of Ireland and Rebels of Ireland by Edward Rutherford

First Aid Manual by the U.S. Army

The Total Outdoorsman Manual from Field and Stream (for Gerry)
