Psychologist and survival expert Richard Logan co-authored Alone, Orphaned on the Ocean with Tere Duperrault Fassbender. The book tells of Fassbender's experience in surviving a murderous rampage when she was only 11 years old. Terry Jo Duperrault, as she was known as a child, went on a family vacation and ended up orphaned and adrift on a tiny raft in the ocean.
Logan is an expert in the psychology of solitary survival. He holds an A.B. degree in anthropology from Harvard University and a doctorate in human development from the University of Chicago. He has also written the book Alone: a Fascinating Study of Those Who Have Survived Long, Solitary Ordeals.
Logan has been a guest on A&E and the Discovery Channel. He lives with his wife, Carol, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
