Elephant Island & Beyond. The Life And Diaries Of Thomas Orde Lees.

By: Thomson John

Price: £26.00

Publisher: Bluntisham Books / Erskine Press: 2003

Edition: 2003 First Edition

Seller ID: 65218

ISBN: 1852970766

Condition: 339pp, hardback, New in dustwrapper.


Orde Lees was probably the least popular and most criticised man involved in Shackleton's Endurance adventure. His diaries have often been plundered for much of the detail of life on board the ship and on the ice but the part he played in keeping the men alive has not been recognised. His journal has never before been published and this book is a long overdue testament to a much misunderstood man, with fascinating details of his later life. View more info
