9780060932619: Mrs. Chippy's Last Expedition: The Remarkable Journal of Shackleton's Polar-Bound Cat

The carpenter has a very fine cat who is known as "Mrs. Chippie..".
-- from the diary of Commander F. A. Worsley, captain of Shackleton's Endurance

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.

Review:

"Now, I can't vouch for the authenticity of this newly found document, but I can say that 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"
