The American on the Endurance
Ice, Seas, and Terra Firma
Adventures of William L. Bakewell
I have had the pleasure of contacting Elizabeth Anna Bakewell Rajala, the daughter of William Lincoln Bakewell. Elizabeth's father was the sole American on Sir Ernest Shackleton's Trans-Atlantic Expedition. She has been kind in granting me permission to use material from Mr. Bakewell's adventurous memoir. I have included a Google Earth tour of his time spent on Elephant Island as part of the current project: SOUTH! THE STORY OF SHACKLETON’S LAST EXPEDITION 1914–1917
The American on the Endurance is available from Dukes Hall Publishing.
