Book description

This novel tells the story of a real-life Australian hero, photographer, explorer and adventurer Frank Hurley. It is a story told through his eyes and in his words, and it reveals a tantalising portrait of the man behind the legend he has become.

Hurley’s photographs and documentaries of Douglas Mawson’s and Ernest Shackleton’s Antarctic expeditions, and his astounding images of World War I have been so widely exhibited and reproduced that in many cases they are the principal means by which we have come to see those world-shattering events. His iconic images of the ship Endurance trapped in an ocean of ice, of men battling the most extreme elements in the Antarctic, and suffering under unthinkable conditions in war are imprinted on the Australian consciousness.

Here now is the man, Hurley, telling us of his part in the two ill-fated Antarctic expeditions and recounting tales of great heroism and suffering as he fights for his life among the ice and the elements, and witnesses the worst ravages of war on the Western Front. Endurance is an extraordinary debut novel, a rollicking white-knuckle adventure story that also takes us to the very heart of heroism and sacrifice.

About the author

Tim Griffiths was living in Papua New Guinea when he first came across Frank Hurley’s photographs of that country, leading to a long-term interest in the Hurley story. He has had no experiences on the scale of Hurley’s adventures and is yet to have an opportunity to visit Antarctica, but has travelled through Europe, Asia and America. He enjoys bushwalking, cross-country skiing, sailing, kayaking, surfing, diving and cycling.

Tim lives in Sydney with his wife and four children. He works as a lawyer and arbitrator, and has a keen interest in Australian history. This is his first novel.
