About David Hirzel

David Hirzel has known the name of Tom Crean since first reading the young adult abridgment (Shackleton’s Valiant Voyage) of Alfred Lansing’s Endurance about the age of ten. He began writing Tom Crean’s story in 1995, and eventually in 2011 published Sailor on Ice about Crean’s adventures with Scott’s Terra Nova expedition. Hold Fast is a continuation of that story.
