Biography of an unsung hero, 26 Jun. 2003
An absolutely unbelievable and fascinating account of the life of one of the lesser known pioneers of Antarctica exploration in the early part of the twentieth century. Again and again you question whether or not you are reading fact or fantasy. The book was completely riveting and I couldn't put it down. Michael Smith has constructed a well-written and informative account of the life of Tom Creann, which I would heartily recommend to any person with even a passing interest in Antarctic exploration or indeed any type of adventure stories. A fitting testament to the life of an unassuming and genuine hero.
