Also included on the CD-ROM is Frank Worsley's verbatim James Caird journal, which has never been published in its entirety until now, and a valuable bibliography. Revised and updated 2001. 341 pages. Fully printable four-colour version. ISBN 0-9703148-2-5.
Regarding the Hurley CD ROM, Caroline Alexander, James Caird Society member and author of Endurance : Shackleton's Legendary Expedition (quoted on the Antarctic-Circle website), writes : "... many congratulations. It is both formidable scholarship and physically beautiful. I make an impassioned plea on behalf of all us non-electronic fogies who still live in the Heroic Age of technology, please, please get it also published on paper! Congratulations on such a successful conclusion to all your hard work."
