My 11 year old son has just finished reading this fantastic book at school and I cant recommend it enough! It's a great story, simply told with lovely illustrations dotted throughout. Tom Crean is a great hero for young and old alike. In this era of reality tv `stars' and computer simulated `heros', Tom Creans story paints a picture of real heroism worthy of our admiration. This is a truly wonderful story and a really great read for boys (and girls) of any age. It would make a great gift for any child - buy it!

Yet another unsung Hero of early Antarctic Exploration

Obviously well researched, and well written. Just like Smith's book about Oates..
