Heard Island Odyssey

By Kirsti Jenkins-Smith, Norfolk Island.
The book tells the complete story of the perilous Heard Island DXpedition to this remote and uninhabited island aboard an old whale chaser, the Cheynes II which had been chartered for the voyage in 1983. It shows how the vessel’s crew and expeditioners alike overcame the many problems which became evident as the ship steamed south through the ‘roaring 40’s.’ It was, however, the voyage home which would seriously test their mettle. Many of the photos contained in the book, are surely unique in the annals of seafaring.
