When Sir Ernest Shackleton's ship "Endurance" became trapped in the Antarctic ice, all twenty-nine members of the crew were pushed to their limits of survival, including Mrs. Chippy, the ship's estimable cat. Fortunately for posterity, Mrs. Chippy left a diary of the ordeal.
Closely based on the true events of Shackleton's heroic journey, and illustrated with authentic photographs taken by Frank Hurley, expedition photographer, "Mrs. Chippy's Last Expedition" is a firsthand account of one of the greatest adventures in history--from a unique point of view.
