ICE, SEAS AND TERRA FIRMA
Jim Aanstos writes to say that 'The American on Endurance: Ice, Seas and Terra Firma - Adventures of William L. Bakewell' is now available direct from the new website of the publishers, Dukes Hall.
Alluding to the 1914-16 expedition as 'one of the greatest survival stories of the 20th Century', the book's cover is illustrated with a handsome black and white sketch of Endurance passing through the ice, before she was trapped, by Bakewell's shipmate Walter How.
The book, edited by Bakewell's daughter Elizabeth, and signed by her (if obtained direct from the publishers), is in paperback and has 204 pages, ISBN 0974913405.
