Tom The Mighty Explorer
By Foley, Tim        
Paperback - English

An illustrated book for children based on the life and adventures of Tom Crean, the Irish explorer who served on three expeditions to Antarctica in the early 20th Century. With 27 colour illustrations, 4 colour maps and an interactive section included, the book is an educative and entertaining insight into the journeys of Tom Crean. Awarded the Albert Medal for bravery in 1913, Crean's heroic exploits are legendary yet have remained little known outside of those in the Polar community.

His is a story of hardship, escape and triumph over adversities in the most unforgiving terrain on our planet. Written for children aged 6-10 years, the story is inspiring, fun, and sometimes sad and is a great introduction to the incredible tale of a real-life hero who children will warm to.

Adapted for children from the biography, Crean - The Extraordinary Life of an Irish Hero, the book which gave rise to a revision of Tom Crean's timeline in the Dictionary of Irish Biography, Tom The Mighty Explorer is a fact-based account that provides a great insight into the history of an era in which world firsts were eagerly sought by explorers of the age who could only achieve glory with men such as Crean alongside them.
