On 4 January 1912 Tom Crean, William Lashley and Teddy Evans watched as Robert Scott and the Pole party began their fateful trip. The three men not chosen by Scott to be part of the Pole party turned round and began their march back to Cape Evans, 750 miles away. Eighty-three miles from safety Evans finally collapsed and ordered his companions to leave him. They disobeyed him and carried the sick man for almost 50 miles before it became evident that they couldn't go on. It was decided that one man would have to try to reach the Hut Point camp alone, leaving the other with the desperately ill Evans. Tom Crean volunteered. On 19 February 1912 he reached safety and the following day Lashley and Evans were rescued.

Illustrator Ian O'Shea, has created this quite unusual little book, filled with stunning illustrations which are atmospheric and moody and which are created with a mix of monotype and pen and ink.
