Icebreaker – An Epic Antarctic AdventureEducational, History, New Products, Non Fiction
This sophisticated picture book captures a snippet in the life of NZ’s Frank Worsley, Captain of the Endurance that sailed from Plymouth in England to Antarctica in 1914. His job was to deliver adventurer Ernest Shackleton and his expedition team to Antarctica.
A year and a half later, as thin as scarecrows, bedraggled but not beaten by the vicious elements, the expedition’s adventure turned into a battle for survival, finally ended.
A beautifully illustrated portrayal of one of NZ’s famous figures of our past, this story reads like the adventure is really was. Filled with action, courage, loyalty and self belief, it would make a fantastic Read Aloud at home at bedtime or in the classroom.
More about the heroes of this story – Frank Worsley and Ernest Shackleton – is included in the back of the book along with photos of the Endurance’s crew and the Endurance itself as it dies in the ice.
