about

"Alexander has done a fine job. . . allowing the cat''s (and her own) sense of humor to have full run." —New York Times Book Review

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.

Caroline Alexander is the author of three books--One Dry Season: In the Footsteps of Mary Kingsley;The Way to Xanadu; and Battle’s End: A Seminal Football Team Revisited--all published by Knopf.She lives in New Hampshire.
