Robert Holding was an English adventurer aged twenty three when he was shipwrecked with nineteen others on the Auckland Islandsin 1864. A year later he was rescued, along with just two of his shipmates. The other had perished from starvation and exposure; their story is one of cannabalism and cunning and a hair-raising tale of intrigue and deception.
