High on any list of Polar explorers would be the names Crozier, McClintock, McClure and Shackleton. But how many know they were all Irish? Seek the Frozen Lands unveils an array of Irish heroes largely unknown in modern Ireland. The sage begins with Edward Bransfield, who made one of the first sightings of the Antarctic in 1820. The story ends with the heroic age of Antarctic exploration and the burial of Shackleton in 1922 in South Georgia. Truly a story of heroism, drama and tragedy. * Similar to: Tom Crean – An Unsung Hero, Captain Francis Crozier – Last Man Standing?, Everest Calling, Ger McDonnell: His Life and His Death on K2.
