Publisher's Summary

A 22,000-ton whaling ship steams into a broken plain of white, glimmering ice during the howling fury of an Antarctic gale. What madness drives the ship forwards, deeper and deeper into the ice until its jagged edges hold her fast? Marooned amidst the pitiless, frozen wastes, the crew of the Southern Cross make a desperate attempt to survive against the odds.
Hammond Innes was born in Sussex, in 1913. He wrote 30 international best sellers, all of which are now being reissued. It was in the early '50s, with books like The Lonely Skier, Campbell's Kingdom, The White South and The Wreck of the Mary Deare, all of them filmed, that he achieved international fame. His final novel was Delta Connection.

Escapist comfort food

Yes it reads and feels a bit dated but it is a fun read well performed. Good clean prose with an entertaining plot. Makes for a welcome change from reading authors with too many stylistic flourishes. Like having a good burger after eating too many snooty foodie dinners.
