5.0 out of 5 stars The Quest for rank Wild 4 Nov 2011
This book is wonderful. It really does encapsulate all that Frank Wild stands for regarding Antarctic exploration. Having travelled myself to both South Georgia and the Antarctic mainland it brings to life the style of exploration during his time.

Commander Franks Wild, CBE RNVR, FRGS was a polar hero and Angie Butler did a great job. She is talking about a second edition, which I look forward to with relish.

Butler the author has written a most informative,compelling,book which I would urge anyone to read as it gives a complete
insight as to the hardships and achievements these Polar Explorers endured and especially in Frank Wilds case should always
be remembered.

3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat dissapointing 27 April 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A beautifully presented high quality book which is marred by many textual errors and what I found a rather poor style of writing. I guess that the author is not a professional writer. Given the subject matter, the book cannot fail to be of interest to any admirer of the man, but I found it to be less engrossing than I had expected. Especially given the price of the book I was therefore rather dissapointed overall. However, for Wild addicts it's a must have, if only for his direct reminiscences.
