The James Caird is an unlikely hero, a 23-foot lifeboat that completed the most desperate and celebrated open boat voyage in history. On board were some of the most recognised names in Antarctic and Polar history. This is the story of that little boat from its commissioning to its dramatic escape to its final resting place at Dulwich College.
Harding McGregor Dunnett (1909-2000) grew up mainly in South London. He was a pupil at Dulwich College when the boat first arrived there. His interest continued throughout the years and, besides writing this book, it led him to found The James Caird Society to perpetuate the memory of Shackleton's heroic days and the boat which served him so well. Roderic Dunnett, Harding's son, is a British journalist specialising in the Arts and Travel. He has written extensively for The Independent, New Statesman, Stage, Oldie and Opera Now, but also for The Strad, The Spectator, FT, The Scotsman, BBC Music Magazine, Welsh National Opera, the Royal Opera and Opera North.
