Reviews

"Beyond terrific. I didn't want it to end." -- Bill Bryson
"Thoroughly absorbs the reader. . . Carefully researched and well-crafted, it brings the story of a ship vividly to life." * Sunday Times *
"[Palin's] narrative is driven by a deep sympathy for explorers and adventurers, while also being illuminated by flashes of gentle wit . . . It's a fascinating story that he brings full-bloodedly to life, stripping away the barnacles of the past to reveal the hidden history of a ship." -- Robert Douglas-Fairhurst * Guardian *
"Everybody's talking about it . . . A brilliant book." -- Chris Evans, BBC Radio 2
"With this irresistible and often harrowing account, Michael Palin makes a convincing case that one heroic little ship embodied the golden ago of polar exploration better than any other: HMS Erebus." -- John Geiger, co-author of Frozen in Time
