    I'm half way through that very book and, so far, would agree on Wansworths assessment.

    Was very impressed with my copy at xmas . See a paperback version is now out which might be more berth friendly on board.

    I got a copy for my birthday, and it's an excellent read. I happen to have done detailed work on part of the 1843 Antarctic expedition - the discovery of what we now call "James Clark Ross Island", Seymour Island and Snowhill Island. I found that Ross' navigation was of the highest standard, agreeing closely with the most current map of the area. I was (slightly) disappointed that Michael Palin disn't spenf more time on that part of Erebus' long career!

    My work is at https://www.cambridge.org/core/journ...43699BFD6FC77D ; sorry you can't access it without paying (I don't get any of it!)
