At the turn of the 20th Century, scientists and explorers were in a race to unlock the secrets of the last great uncharted place on Earth – Antarctica. This is the true story of Tom Crean, the legendary Irish explorer and crewmate of three of the most important and famous expeditions in British history – Discovery, Terra Nova and Endurance. Through his story, we discover the events that took place on these voyages which were often thrilling, inspiring and heart-breaking.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Readers fascinated by the sea or by our least-populated continent will find this biography gripping ... A story of bitter cold infused with warmth and with the fighting spirit of its courageous subject' - Kirkus

'Thermes's honed text, in a grabbingly immediate present tense, uses short, high-impact sentences that make the most of the inherent drama. Her illustrations (in watercolor, colored pencil, and salt) are full of detail, action, and atmosphere' - Horn Book Magazine

'The artwork features a soft, sunny palette that keeps the story upbeat, even during blizzards and perilous times' - Booklist
