Book Description

In 1918, sailors from the famous polar ship Endurance recorded a ballad about one of their fellow crew members. The chorus went:

Hail, hail, Tom Crean, hail, hail, Tom Crean,

He's the bravest man that the world's ever seen.

Hail, hail, Tom Crean, hail, hail, Tom Crean,

He's the Irish giant from County Kerry!

So who was this man hailed as a hero and loved and respected so much? Who faced death many times and never backed down ? And how did this farmer s son from Kerry, who ran away to join the navy at 15, come to be such a famous Antarctic explorer?

This is his amazing story."
