Abstract:

11 year old Thor is the lowest of the low at a subantarctic whaling station. As a whaler's boy, he spends long, hard days loading coal.

It is the Endurance, carrying Shackleton and his intrepid explorers on their voyage of discovery to the Antarctic. Thor has never seen anything like her, and when he is caught up in the expedition's fight for survival, he must decide where his future lies. Suggested level: intermediate, junior secondary.
