The Mil­lion­aire Cast­away

Paradise - - Living -

By Dave Glasheen and Neil Bramwell (Af­firm Press)

David Glasheen lost his for­tune in the stock mar­ket crash of 1987. From be­ing a busi­ness high flyer, he opted out of the rat race and moved to a de­serted is­land on the north-east tip of Aus­tralia, where he has hap­pily lived ever since. Glasheen’s for­tune, on today’s val­ues, was es­ti­mated as $37 mil­lion. These days, he sur­vives on one su­per­maket shop per year when he goes to the main­land, he catches fish, cooks on an open fire and traps rain­wa­ter.
