    Review quote
    "Mr. Grill's manner of illustration lends itself beautifully to the juxtaposition of early-20th-century human ingenuity and the raw, indifferent power of nature." - "Wall Street Journal" "A perfect picture book for any would be historian or adventurer. " - "This Picture Book Life" "Author William Grill does an excellent job telling this story so that the book can be both a resource for a child's book report as well as a captivating picture book for anyone wanting to learn about this expedition. But even more powerful than the narrative are the detailed and dramatic illustrations, done in colored pencils, many which, if framed, would look stunning on a wall. To top it all off, the textured book cover and raw, thick pages make this a book to flaunt on your coffee table or child's bookshelf." - "Wink Books" "This is a book that will appeal to adult art lovers, picture book fans and history buffs (of which, I fall into all three categories), children and adult alike. The book's large format gives ample space for detailed colored pencil illustrations and the perfect pacing for such a fascinating journey." - "The Eric Carle Museum" "William Grill's well designed book is the perfect introduction for young readers to get a sense of the Endurance expedition." - "Mindy Rhiger"
