New Book on Bruce

16 Jan

I am delighted that the book is to be published by Amberley Publishing in March. My co-author is John Dudeney who has visited the Antarctic frequently and who also has an invaluable access to government papers relating to the time when Bruce was having ongoing confrontations with the powers-that-be in London.

The book has taken some years to write. In theory I enjoy the research though I have to say that the practical problems of spending hours deciphering increasingly spidery handwriting in letters and statements that turn out to have no relevance to Bruce’s story can be trying! but I think we have presented William Speirs in a fair and balanced way and that the book will deliver him from the relative obscurity that he has somehow sunk to.
