'On board were six brave men: Ernest Shackleton, Tom Crean and Frank Worsley, now some of the most recognised names in Antarctic and Polar literature/history,' together with Irishman Tim McCarthy, Scots carpenter Harry McNeish, and Hull Trawlerman John Vincent.
This is the detailed story of that plucky little vessel, from her commissioning in the West India Docks by Worsley to her dramatic escape from Antarctica, her near-impossible, icebound 800-mile journey across mountainous seas from Elephant Island to South Georgia; and thence by strange and fascinating escapades to her final resting place at Dulwich College in South London. Paperback. Illustrations: B&W photos throughout.
Shackleton's Boat is a good read, full of rare information, and a very good book.
The book will also be on sale at the James Caird Society Dinner and Talk at Dulwich on Friday 6 November.
