Author and polar historian David Hirzel is pleased to announce the publication of his latest book, “Antarctic Voyager: Tom Crean with Scott’s Discovery Expedition 1901-1904” at Craobh Haven Scotland.
This book recounts the start of the Irish explorer’s time in the Antarctic that included his notable adventures in Scott’s Terra Nova expedition (“Sailor on Ice” 1910-1913) and Shackleton’s Endurance expedition (“Hold Fast” 1913-1917). The three books together take the reader along with Crean, through some of the most harrowing tales of survival against seemingly insurmountable odds.
All are available from Terra Nova Press (firstname.lastname@example.org) and amazon.com.
