“Throughout the expedition, danger was ever-present. The crew faced appalling weather conditions, as well as cramped living quarters, so it was no surprise that tensions boiled over on a number of occasions. It would have been miraculous if it had happened otherwise. I’m sure that without Earl’s doggedness and leadership, the expedition would have been aborted. This is a page-turner for all readers, young or old – in every sense a boy’s own adventure story.”
