The true story of a modern- day Swiss Family Robinson who make the ultimate sea- change for a new life on a desert island.

The true story of a modern- day Swiss Family Robinson who make the ultimate sea- change for a new life on a desert island.

After travelling the world alone in his handmade boat, Scottish adventurer Ron Falconer still yearns to live his dream – to escape to a desert island. But when he falls in love with Anne, a strong-willed Frenchwoman, it looks like the dream may remain just that.

Two children later, Anne’s ready to try it. When the Falconer family arrive at their new home, tiny Caroline Atoll in the Pacific, they quickly discover that life in paradise isn’t easy. Shark-infested waters, crafty rats, giant crabs and flesh-eating ants – it’s sink or swim for Ron and Anne, as they struggle to live off the land and raise their children without the things many of us take for granted.

In Together Alone Ron Falconer celebrates the pristine island wilderness of Caroline Atoll in loving detail. Both an adventure and a love story, it’s an insightful, poignant and truly fascinating tale of how one man’s dream to live alone in paradise becomes very much an extraordinary family affair.

About the Author

Ron Falconer

Ron Falconer was born and raised in a small viallge in the highlands of Scotland. Always a dreamer and an insatiable traveller, he built his own boat, Fleur d'Ecosse, and sailed away to a life of a wandering nomad, travelling over 50,000 miles and visiting over 100 ports. For four years he lived with his wife and two young children alone on a deserted island, an experience he describes in his book, TOGETHER ALONE. Ron has now settled on the island of Moorea, near Tahiti.
