Hammond Innes – The White South


SHIP ABANDONED

The great whaling factory-ship Southern Cross, of more than 20,000 tons, is caught and crushed in the Polar ice. 500 men face an agonising death in the frozen wastes of the Antarctic.

A last desperate plea for help to the outside world … and then silence.

The disaster was a nine day wonder, quickly forgotten by the newspapers. But long after the abortive rescue attempts – after all help
had been abandoned – the great ice-fields yielded their cruel secret…

“I can still hear the roar of the ice as the great floes close in upon those stranded men.” Daphne du Maurier
