              Much has been written about explorer Ernest Shackleton's three courageous expeditions to the Antarctic. What is not so well-known is the crucial role that Captain Frank Worsley played in saving the lives of the crew of Endurance after it got stuck in ice floes and broke apart dur...ing the attempt to traverse the Continent in 1914. After abandoning their ship, in the Weddell Sea, Frank led marches across the ice in the hope of reaching land. When their ice flow split, endangering all their lives, the survivors boarded three small lifeboats. Frank navigated them to Elephant Island during a terrific storm. When they found the island uninhabited, Frank led a six-man rescue party 1300 kilometres overland to a whaling station in South Georgia. Without his precise navigation skills and incredible determination, the rescue party would never have made it. One day after reaching the whaling station, he set out again to go back and rescue the other members of the lifeboat party.

              Set along the rugged beauty of the South Australian coast, Storm Boy cares for an injured pelican and finds a friend that shows him the power of loyalty and love. This moving story is now a major motion-picture and one of the classics of Australian writing for children. This edit...ion comes with five other stories by Colin Thiele that capture the unique voices of Australians across the natural and suburban landscape. The Water Trolley- Paul knew the vastness and emptiness of the land around him. Paul understands the delicate balance of nature. Through his eyes, readers will fall in love with the sharp vulnerability of the bush. The Lock-Out - The first disaster occurred at the end of Mr Hecht's science lesson. With his parents away in Melbourne, Jim expects a fun break but a series of unfortunate disasters sets in a motion an unforgettable weekend. Dad Ran A Fowl Run - Dad kept fowls once and I'll never forget it. Aveling's dad has ambitions to get rich off of raising a small army of hens and roosters but things turn crooked for Aveling and his dad's big plans. The Shell - Everywhere great columns of white spray rose as if in slow motion... Two travellers realise the terrible beauty of the ocean and the harrowing consequences for those who look away. The Fish Scales - He was five feet long! King of all snappers... A tale of struggle much like that of Ahab, that captures a light-hearted battle between man and nature.
