The short story by Stephen Crane freely adapted for radio by IAN RODGER
After the success of The Red Badge of Courage, Stephen Crane spent most of his remaining life as a war correspondent. At the end of 1896 he was sent to Florida on board The Commoilore to cover a filibustering expedition to Cuba, and on New Year's Day the ship sank. The Open Boat is Stephen Crane 's re-creation of his fifty-hour struggle for life in the open sea.
