Now available in a fresh, new format, this is the story of the remarkable Tom Crean who ran away to sea aged fifteen and played a memorable role in Antarctic exploration. He spent more time in the unexplored Antarctic than Scott or Shackleton, and was one of the few to serve and outlive both. Among the last to see Scott alive only 150 miles from the South Pole, Tom was in the search party that found the frozen body. An unforgettable story of triumph over unparalleled hardship and deprivation does justice to this enigmatic figure.
The first festival celebrating the life of the incredible Tom Crean took place in June 2013. Take a look at how it went!
