The Bright Side of my Condition - by Charlotte Randall

After escaping from the Norfolk Island penal colony on a sealing ship, Bloodworth and his three fellow convicts are left on a remote southern island by a captain who promises to pick them up in a year’s time. But it will be many years before they see another ship. During that time the four men, with nothing in common but a desire to escape and a need to survive, live together in cramped and freezing isolation.
