Summary:
Cannibalism never fails to evoke strong reactions. Often, cannibal tales recall starving people eating the dearly departed out of desperation and an ingrained will to survive. But there's an even darker side. Sometimes people go beyond eating those who have died and kill comrades for the flesh on their bones. The consequences can be severe--from imprisonment to ostracism to madness. We delve into three stories of cannibalism. The first is about four British sailors in the 1800s stranded at sea in a dinghy after the yacht they were on sank. Next, we delve into a classic cannibal horror tale of a prisoner at Sarah Island, a remote penal hellhole in Tasmania in the 1820s, who escaped with other prisoners. And we look at a WWII story set among Japanese troops on New Guinea.
