Description

History lovers will enjoy Palin’s fascinating and comprehensive account of the ship HMS Erebus. When Erebus retired from her warship days, she and Terror were the first sailing ships to discover the existence of Antarctica as a continent. Palin recounts too the story of her demise during the Northwest Passage trip-under the captaincy of the incompetent John Franklin. His research is meticulous: replete with grisly truth of the ill-fated trip, but also a practical study on what it was like to sail in Erebus: where the men ate, slept and how they performed their allotted tasks.
