I have tried to select the curious details that tell the stories, and regretfully left everything else out - such are the limitations of the Mural medium. But here you will find a lot more of the background to help you piece the story together. I am hugely indebted to those valiant pre-photo-era artists, Barrow's contemporaries, who braved nightmarish discomforts to record their lives, times and adventures - probably drawing with albatross quills, half the time - notably William Alexander, George Francis Lyon, Samuel Daniell, and even John Barrow himself, that indefatigable gatherer of As you will very soon realize, I've made no attempt to be scholarly or tell the whole story, which turned out to be a huge one.

There are many many omissions. There are 2 copies in the glass case in the reference dept of Ulverston public library.

It is quite good reading until he joins the Admiralty and even then there are some wryly humorous moments. Find out more about OverDrive accounts.

Barrow's Boys: A Stirring Story of Daring, Fortitude, and Outright Lunacy

From the author of Ninety Degrees North , a spellbinding account of how officers of the British Navy explored the world after the Napoleonic Wars. In , John Barrow, second secretary to the British admiralty, launched the most ambitious program of exploration the world has ever seen. For the next thirty years, his handpicked teams of elite British naval officers scoured the globe from the Arctic to Antarctica, their mission: to fill the blanks that littered the atlases of the day.

Barrow's Boys is the spellbinding story of these adventurers, the perils they faced—including eating mice, their shoes, and even each other to survive—and the challenges they overcame on their odysseys into the unknown. Many of these expeditions are considered the greatest in history, and here they've been collected into one volume that captures the full sweep of Barrow's program.
