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.

White South

This story started off very well, was full of interest and had considerable pace until the characters left the ships and became marooned on the ice. From this point on I'm afraid it went donwhill and became a bit of a 'chore'.

Riveting.

Husband really looked forward to listening to this and wasn't disappointed. Full of daring do and a mans got to do what a mans got to do. Will be downloading the rest of Mr Innes books. Great narration too :)

Descriptive without too much violence and an easy read at bed time.
