An Unsung Hero - The remarkable story of Tom Crean

An Unsung Hero - The remarkable story of Tom Crean

By Michael Smith

Tom Crean is the unsung and inspirational hero of Antarctic exploration; now, for the first time, his astonishing life of adventure, heroism and survival against the odds is told. 'An Unsung Hero' reveals how he volunteered for Polar exploration, was one of the last to see Scott alive before his ill-fated expedition reached the South Pole and returned to bury him in the snow months later. It recounts the leading role Crean played in Shackleton's legendary 'Endurance' expedition, during which he sailed the small open 'James Caird' across the violent Southern Ocean, and his involvement in the historic crossing of South Georgia's glaciers.
