Comment on Antarctica Cruising Guide by Craig Franklin
Gun for a Fountain Pen by George Murray Levick
The story of the Terra Nova expedition is one of survival in the Antarctic. Levick's journal adds to this record the struggles of the brave men who explored the southern continent. Kerry Stokes AC There is nothing like the Antarctic for sending the schemes of mice and men all to blazes.
Franklin by Andrew D. Lambert
In 1845 Captain Sir John Franklin led a large, well equipped expedition to complete the conquest of the Canadian Arctic, to find the fabled North West Passage connecting the North Atlantic to the North Pacific. This story of the Arctic discovers Franklin: a character far more complex, and more truly heroic, than previous histories have allowed.
