Book Details

Book Description
Irish-language edition of this popular children’s biography. Tom Crean was no ordinary man, and his chilling adventures in the Antarctic raise real goosebumps in this stirring story of survival in extraordinary conditions.

Nuair a bhí Tom Crean cúig bliana déag d’aois d’imigh sé ó bhaile agus chuaigh sé isteach sa Chabhlach Ríoga. Tar éis tamaill bhí sé san Antartach. Bhí sé an-dheacair taisteal chun an Antartaigh céad bliain ó shin. Bhí an turas cosúil le turas go Iúpatar inniu.
Fear láidir ba ea Tom Crean. Shábháil sé a chomrádaithe. Tháinig sé slán ón oighear, ón sneachta, ón bhfuacht agus tá a scéal dochreidte, beagnach. Sa leabhar seo beidh na daoine óga faoi dhraíocht ag an gcrógacht agus an neart a thaispeáin Tom Crean.

Aistrithe ag Neil Buttimer, Roinn na Nua-Ghaeilge, Coláiste na hOllscoile, Corcaigh, agus curtha in oiriúint do léitheoirí óga ag Máire Ní Mhurchú. Buíochas le Máire Ní Chéileachair as obair eagarthóireachta.
