Tom Crean : unsung hero of the Scott and Shackleton Antarctic expeditions

Title:   Tom Crean : unsung hero of the Scott and Shackleton Antarctic expeditions 

Making the most of limited resources, Smith documents the adventures of Tom Crean, a man who spent more time in the Antarctic than Scott or Shackleton. A modest man, he did not leave diaries, letters, photographs or books detailing his exploits as many others did. In fact, he never gave an interview and rarely spoke of his adventures to family and friends in County Kerry, Ireland. What emerges from this biography is an extremely private and unassuming man. His selfless courage, resilience, loyalty and limitless good humor kept despair in check from numerous life threatening situations. His adventures are incredible, and the man unflappable. This biography is one you won’t soon forget.
