Tom Crean was no ordinary man, and his chilling adventures in the Antarctic raise goosebumps in this stirring story of survival in extraordinary conditions. He saved comrades from drowning in frozen waters, and rescued others from freezing snow, whilst following his leaders – Captain Scott and Ernest Shackleton, the famous Polar explorers. Written by Crean's biographer who wrote the best-selling An Unsung Hero, this is a boy's own story of courage, strength and determination sure to thrill any young reader.

A wonderful festival took place during June of this year, celebrating the life of the incredible Tom Crean with a theme of endurance. Take a look at how it went! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ju3mNwRUCN4&feature=share
