This adventure novel charts the voyage of a fleet of seven ships in a Norwegian whaling expedition near the South Pole. The main characters of the book are a group of young boys who sign on for the expedition in Hobart, Tasmania. “Mr. Villiers interweaves a fascinating documentary account of modem whaling with the story of a group of Australian ragamuffins, signed on in Hobart by the whaling fleet as extra hands. I have never read a better description of the bitter Antarctic winter or the operations of a whaling fleet.” – The Argus. Winner of the 1950 Australian Children’s Book of the Year Award for Older Readers.
