William L. Bakewell

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.
