A human story behind the sinking of the Titanic
In this remarkable piece of historical detective work, author Christopher Ward reveals what happened after his grandfather, a violinist on the Titanic, perished.
In 1912, 1500 people lost their lives when the Titanic sunk. At 21 years of age, Jock Hume was the youngest member of the Titanic’s orchestra. He was due to marry his fiancee, Mary, when he returned home. She was pregnant with his child. Almost 100 years later, Christopher tells a poignant story of love, loss and betrayal as he describes the impact that Jock’s death had on both Jock and Mary’s families. He paints a vivid portrait of a society constrained by a class system that was enforced not only in life, but also in death. Softcover •

The ship is already boiling over with a mutinous plot when, just off the coast of Western Australia, it hits a reef.

A landmark book This is the story of Aussie Douglas Mawson, a famous Antarctic explorer. After an apprenticeship on an expedition with Ernest Shackleton, which saw Mawson lead a small team to the South Magnetic Pole for the first time, his own expedition of 1911-14 captured the imagination of Australians, at a time when knowledge of Antarctica was scant and the frozen continent still largely unexplored.
Lincoln Hall offers a fresh interpretation not only of Mawson’s exploits, but also of his motivations, his character and his knack for survival. Hall also draws on his own experiences in mountaineering in his attempt to understand what made it possible for Mawson to achieve what he did in dangerous conditions. Hardback • 224 pages •
