Surviving Erebus is based on an amazingly courageous and pioneering Antarctic voyage of exploration that began in 1839 and lasted for several years. Told through the eyes and experience of a young stowaway, whose chances for survival were low when he is discovered and who has to prove himself again and again to the ship's usually hostile and aggressive crew, this is a tale of confronting the most adverse conditions on the planet.

His adventures of exploration and discovery in Antarctica are described graphically and accurately and the reader can almost hear the cracking of the ice and the creaking of the ship’s timbers as winter closes in; feel the discomfort of the cramped and basic living quarters and share the fear of young David as he wonders how he got himself into this most challenging environment.

That he comes through, survives to become a valued crew member and grows up, is due not only to his resilience, deep curiosity and basic good nature, but also to the support of an important mentor, the ship’s scientist who enrolls him as his assistant.

A wonderful tale that will enthrall and involve any young person.
