Smith has produced yet another wonderful book – this, a pictorial biography, celebrates the life of Tom Crean, a great Irish hero of Antarctic exploration. His adventures on the ice are captured in photographs taken under the most difficult conditions. These are now assembled for the first time with other previously unseen pictures which illustrate his early life, the incredible feats in the Antarctic and a peaceful retirement in Kerry, Ireland. Supported by complementary text, diary extracts and maps plus new information on Tom Crean's life, this is a lasting celebration of a true hero.
